Monday ramblings

If you’ve read this blog for a while, you know about my ongoing love of bikes in Europe, specifically in The Netherlands. I saw this sad little bicycle in London along the Thames a couple of weekends ago. Poor thing. I have photos of happier bikes here and here. We went to a nearby garden […]

London: The Globe Theatre and "We Will Rock You"

London: The Globe Theatre and “We Will Rock You”

One thing you learn quickly when living in England is: if the sun shines, go out! We haven’t been into London as a family for a while, so when the sun came out Saturday morning, London was our destination. Roxi wanted to go to the Globe Theatre gift store to buy a few little leather-bound […]

We went for a walk on Saturday

One of the things we have learned in our time here is that if we are blessed with a sunny day, we must take advantage of it no matter what! Saturday was a beautiful, mild Spring day. After being cooped up for so long, a country walk was definitely in order. The only question was–where? […]

Hampton Court Palace

Well, it turned out that Roxi had too much homework for us to take a short trip. This actually worked out well, because my crew got some good sleep this weekend. However, we did feel like we should do something, so we settled on an outing to Hampton Court Palace on Saturday. Some of the […]

Aunt J does Windsor and Eaton

Thursday, Aunt J and I toured Windsor Castle, visited the Christmas Market in Eaton and had lunch in a pub. Wow–this was my first trip to Windsor Castle, too, and I was really blown away. I think this better be a “must do” if you ever visit England. I loved the crown on top of […]
