    That last pic is my favorite. Feel like I’m Gandolf is gonna come out and I’m gonna go on a Lord of the Rings adventure … which would be awesome. :)

  2. This area really brings up thoughts of Merry Olde England. We a village down the path from Bath but ran to catch the lat train back to London. I do want to go back! Cool pix

  3. I loved my visit to the Cotswolds 6 or 7 years ago. The villages are so… quaint. Isn’t that the best way to describe them? I remember walking from village to village through people’s yards (permissible, believe it or not!) Like walking through a storybook.

    Such great memories of the Cotswolds! I went there for the first time last spring, and was lucky enough to meet one of their most famous residents. [http://wp.me/p2SHpT-o5]

        That’s so funny. I was just in Ireland and it reminded me of California suburbs. Only with better pubs.

            I went over on the car ferry from Scotland to Glasgow and then drove around the south of Ireland and over to Kerry. Don’t get me wrong — it was gorgeous, even in the dead of winter. But it was just so dang prosperous. It’s been a few decades since I was there, and apparently those little thatched roof cottages burning their blue peat smoke are an endangered species with less than 1000 left. (But if you want to buy one, journalist Cormac McConnell has just written “Who wants to buy our beautiful thatched cottage in Clare, Ireland?”– http://goo.gl/M9UgwI)

    Absolutely gorgeous pics, Susie. Convinces me that I do really need to see England (but Ireland first). The flowers at the top of your page ARE from your garden, right ??? :)

        It’s a photo of an amazing church. There were parishioners inside getting ready for mass. It was very unadorned compared to most churches we visited, but that back door was a surprise! It was late in the day and the lighting was very tricky.
        I’ll check out the book. By the way, thanks for the breast cancer link on Linked In. I didn’t know how to respond to you on my iPad.
        Thanks Ted!

    That church and, to a lesser degree, the cottage, looks like a movie set for Hobbiton.

    Susie, that last pic looks like the B & B where hubby and I stayed in Stow-on-the-Wold. It was the perfect setting for sight seeing around Oxford and Warwickshire. And of course Strafford-upon-Avon. You know. A real famous bloke lived there. Darn, what was his name? William…. :)
