Home from England! And Lots to Share

Home at last, and getting ourselves sorted. What a trip we had! I have about 800 photos to sort and will be sharing the best of them here in the coming month. There is so much to tell, so much to remember. It was, I think, the trip of a lifetime and I am so very glad we went.

Now it is back to life as usual. We picked up my computer which was getting files from my old one transferred while we were gone, got groceries and gas on the way home. It was awesome to be greeted by our happy dogs and cats, who all looked quite contented and well fed thanks to the good care by our neighbors while we were away. The gardens are pitiful from the lack of rain; apparently it was very dry while we were gone. Larry found a few cucumbers and some nice tomatoes though, and there are a few other things hanging on. Hoping for rain this week. Everything is so dry.

I got our suitcases unpacked and started on the mammoth pile of laundry, sorted out the mail that our kind carrier had held and delivered yesterday. Then we watched some Doc Martin, laughing when we could identify the places we'd seen in Port Isaac, where the show was filmed. Bed felt so good; I was glad we'd changed the sheets before we left. We'd also left the house in pretty good order so coming home was not stressful. Instead, it was relaxing to know there was nothing pressing waiting for us to do.

Here are a few teaser pics for this morning. I'll be writing more and posting more because this blog is the best place I have for capturing those memories.

Nice to be back with you, friends!

Glad to hear that you arrived back safe and sound.
In answer to your recent comment on my post about the town of Clare - while we were sitting outside having that cup of tea I got up from the table, went inside the antique shop and shot three or four pictures. "There," I said as I returned to the table, "that'll get cousin Sue back to England again!". Your comment confirms my feeling.

You are right! I will never be able to see all I want to see in England. The history and culture is so old, and so rich. I miss it as soon as I leave. But at least I have many posts to write over the next week or so, and that will let me stretch out the experience a little while longer. In the meantime, I can keep reading your posts and seeing what I can, through your eyes.
