Hiking High Street Peak

The next morning we got up, got ready quickly, and hit the road to our hike for the day, High Street Peak.  The route took us down tiny little roads, as I’ve realized is very typical for the countryside in the UK, and over the above little bridge.  I love the little, old stone bridges […]

Castlerigg Stone Circle

Touring the Lake District

So I have been really busy since the spring of this year, with various vacations, weekend road trips, and a lot of work.  As a result, I’ve got so much stuff to post about now that life is slowing down a bit.  Back at the end of May, I took a weekend road trip up […]

Could there have been a more beautiful sunrise for this day?!?

Happy Summer Solstice from Stonehenge!!

Spring has long since arrived here in England and its starting to end and look more like summer here.  That is if you ignore all of the baby animals currently roaming free, and the flowering trees everywhere.  Alright, so it looks like an English summer, not really the summer those of us from the states […]

The Roman Baths

The Baths of Bath

After strolling through the Bath Abbey, we proceeded to head across the little square to the Roman Baths.  A rather famous site, there are tons of pictures online, looking down into the pool with the Roman statues lined around the top….   Well, not quite.  Of course, there is that large pool, with the statues […]
