Travels with Em

While Em was here, we did all kinds of fun stuff. She arranged a hack (trail ride) at a local stables. I rode for the first time in 30 yrs. I felt it for the next week, but the breathtaking scenery made it totally worth it. I even did some trotting! No photos, sorry!
We also went to the Cirencester Polo Park, where the royal family play polo. We had a great time, everyone there was friendly and made us feel welcome. unfortunately, no royals were there that day. 
We shopped in town, walked in the country and ate in village pubs. We visited South Wales(see previous post) and London.  In London we at dim sum in Chinatown, saw a movie, and the changing of the guard at the Horse Guard.  Before we dropped her at Heathrow, we went to Hampton Court Palace, and spent a few hours going the the palace and grounds, (must return to tour the expansive gardens). Many beautiful photos were taken, what follows are some of our favorites.


  1. Who is that handsome man that looks like Andrew?

  3. You should check out this great website, it helps identify birds and you can even hear what they sound like.
