First Spring walk through the woods

First Spring walk through the woods

We took a walk in Windsor Great Park on Sunday. It was a little cool, and there wasn’t much in bloom yet (only a few daffodils). Still, we had two lovely hours in the fresh air and sunshine. As soon as we got into the car, however, it started to sprinkle. And as soon as […]

Time Out Country Walk #24: Cookham (Round Walk)

Ah, a photo-heavy post. You’ll excuse me while I indulge in one. You see, I haven’t posted a lot of photos lately as I’ve been a little burned out with my camera. But this beautiful walk deserves these photos. I took 223 pictures yesterday and narrowed down my selection quite a bit as you can […]

Time Out Country Walk 14: Gomshall to Guildford

Two Sundays ago, Mr. DJ wanted to go for a walk. When Mr. DJ says go for a walk, he means a long country walk that lasts at least four hours. Unfortunately, Roxi had not started her homework, so she and I had to stay home. However, Trudy was happy to volunteer to go and […]

¡Congratulacion España! and other things

Spain won the Euro 2008 Championship. Here are some loyal fans in Nuremberg, Germany. There were some really hardcore ones in Salzburg! Oh, I know, I’ve been so slow in posting my Germany photos. Now that Roxi is out for the summer it is hard to find three or four hours to sit down and […]

Feed me!

Though it looks like this fellow has engaged the attention of those frisky otters, he is actually feeding the ducks (not pictured, too bad because there were some darling little ducklings!). The otters are part of Surrey Sculpture Society’s 2008 Exhibit at Savill Garden in Windsor Great Park, England. .I am off to take Roxi […]

After your stroll through the garden, you can have lunch or tea on the terrace overlooking the garden. It’s fabulous, I tell you. Oh and don’t forget to stop in Savill’s […]

Jet lag

My new coffee mug from the Tate Modern + bedside reading. That blue wall is in the master bedroom of our little rental house in England. At first it shocked me–I’ve never had such deeply coloured rooms. I’m kind of used to it by now. Yesterday afternoon, my father and I had talked about all […]

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? […]

Happy May Day!

Flowers in Valley Garden, Windsor Great Park, England. I took this photo in May 2007. I am sad to say I haven’t been to the gardens this year yet. Roxi’s drama celebration was fun. There were about 13 kids performing nine different skits and poems. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but it was great […]

Thanksgiving in England

Bridge in Windsor Great Park, England. Well, when we went to bed last night, it was raining. Actually we had thunder and lightning, which is unusual for our part of England. Normally we get a very polite, steady light rain or heavy misting. However, when we woke up this morning, it was still raining. If […]
