Deep in thought at breakfast

I’m not yet finished with England as far as my stories go, but this simply expressive photograph caught my attention today and I thought I would put it up to share. It’s one of the last taken on that trip, during our breakfast at Gatwick airport before we left and it doesn’t need anything more in the way of description.

Clicking on the image takes you to the gallery of photographs of our trip to England (more to come).

Joe and Elsie

One of the best things about our trip to England was finding family waiting for us. This was a really special trip for us as we met our two youngest grandchildren for the first time. In this post I am simply wanting to share with you, my dear readers a couple of photos I took of them. They are absolutely wonderful.

‘England Swings’

… like a pendulum do’ as the song goes. When one of my readers (yes, Jesse, that’s you!) said he wanted to see a pair of Bobbys on bicycles two by two, I had to fix it for him somehow. Well they don’t ride around on bicycles in pairs anymore, and certainly not where we are.

So here’s my laughing policeman! Part of my England!

An evening meal with friends is one of the greatest pleasures we can have. Wonderful food, interesting conversation, warmth and laughter. Nothing makes you feel as good on a long drive home as the feelings that linger. Thank you, Michelle and Kyle. It was a lovely evening.
