The Great Adventure - Part One
This is a passport photo. Forty three years ago, John and I set off on our Great Adventure -- three months traveling and camping in Europe. I wrote about it HERE a while back...
In the course of my closet clean up in search for a missing earring, I discovered several boxes of photos -- some from said Great Adventure. Not so many as I'd like -- most of our photos are on slides -- but enough to bring back so many memories. .
Our Sears tent -- had we only known how sophisticated European camping gear was! We looked like the poor relations...
So many memories -- Devon's apple orchards in bloom, Stonehenge -- back then you could walk amongst the Standing Stones, clotted cream . . .
Salisbury Cathedral, Maiden Castle -- which turned out to be an Iron Age hill fort -- a great tiered mound with sheep all over it, pubs -- I fell in love with shandy, an unlikely combination of fizzy lemonade and beer, Scotch eggs and Cornish pasties and picnicking on the cliffs of the Dorset coast...
We toured Greenwich and Hampton Court, me, seeing it though a haze of historical novels and English history -- and when we began watching the Showtime series THE TUDORS last night, I fell in love with England all over again.
