Whatever happened in 2014?

And a delightful photo of the entire group (including four extra guests who came for the promenade). Such lovely frocks and accessories!

After a year of careful planning and hard work, we did, indeed, put together a marvelous tour itinerary, revisiting some favorite spots from the 2012 tour and adding a new costumed event. But, due to a crazy change in immigration law where we live in Africa, my travel visa lapsed and could not be renewed until after the tour! Thankfully, my well-traveled and very gracious husband stepped in and lead my tour for me, and I chimed in on Skype now and again to chat with the group and see how things were going. It was a huge disappointment to miss my own trip, but I’m so glad it went off without a hitch and was a roaring success. Here are some photo highlights thanks to Cathy Hay of Your Wardrobe Unlock’d, who was a special speaker on this trip and took lots of pictures!

I'm headed to the UK to lead this year's Historical Fashion Tour. My group will be in Bath for the opening of the Jane Austen Festival, then in Winchester and London. You can follow us over on my Facebook page, where I'll be posting pictures and insights from the trip.

Closing out the 2013 Tour list!

Well, the little time I’ve had online has been spent working on this year’s tour instead of formatting pictures from last year’s! Time is flying by far too quickly. In less than seven months, we’ll be in Bath, Winchester, Chawton, and London, touring Jane Austen sites and viewing historical fashions up close.

Catching up…?

Our group after the Grand Costumed Promenade. I am always so proud of our group's incredible costumes--this year's were stunning all 'round!

Yes, it has now been over four months since I promised to finish blogging my last trip, but I plead Kenyan Internet! It has been turtle-slow since October, which has made it difficult to do very much at all, especially with photos. But I’m busily organizing pictures this month and hope to complete the final few days of our trip soon.

Yes, I’ll finish up the blog soon!

Well, I’ve been home for quite a while now, but it has taken time to nurse the dead laptop back to life and attend to the business of “catch-up.” đŸ˜‰ I’m hoping to dump all my photos this week and organize them so I can finish posting (and share some larger versions of ones people have requested). Until then, here are a couple of shots taken for a Bath newspaper the Saturday we were there. We sure had a grand time!

And here’s one he shot of me walking with my wee girlie (who had undone my bonnet ties!). Fun, fun day with gorgeous sunshine through most of it.

Gathered as a group at the end of the day...and we still look fabulous--LOL!

Well, readers, it has been an absolutely stellar day in Bath. We are all done in from a day of walking, so I am going to turn in early. But I’ll share a couple of photos to give you a taste of things to come!

Loaded up on the coach, dressed for the promenade, and ready for Bath!

Gathered as a group at the end of the day…and we still look fabulous–LOL!

I’ll share more tomorrow. Suffice it to say, we got utterly gorgeous weather (despite forecasts for frost and drizzles), and we all enjoyed the delights of the golden city of Bath. Until later, good night!

Okay, I just have to share some festival video links!

Several of our ladies got into these videos, though you have to know where to look to find them. You’ll enjoy the clips anyway!
