I recently returned from a week in my second homeland. Mom and I stayed in the Lake District (Windermere and Grasmere) for the first three days. We took the public bus a lot and saw a lot of sheep-dotted countryside.
Then we headed to London for a couple of days. We spent most of our time there shopping at Harrods and Covent Garden. I made my usual pilgrimage to the building I lived in when I worked there. Ah, 50 Hogarth Road.
We spent our last day and night at Leeds Castle in Kent. There is a B and B on the castle grounds, which was lovely. It was fun to walk around the grounds after the castle had closed to the public.
The trip went by in a blink…I could have used at least another week. Alas, all vacations are too short, aren’t they?
