A Wedding, Historic Houses, Castles and the English Seaside

12 Aug

The last few days have been rather hectic. After the wedding on Saturday and a reception that lasted into the wee hours, our friends Heather and Graham have been the perfect hosts. They’ve taken us to visit some historic homes and castles. We’ve had a quick visit to the English seaside at Lyme Regis where they own a cottage and a gift shop. And when we haven’t dined at pubs or tea shops, Heather has prepared some amazing meals. It will be difficult to say goodbye tomorrow morning but I’m sure we will meet up again with our good friends.

    This looks amazing! I’m now yearning to visit the English seaside! It looks absolutely beautiful. What a stunning wedding that must have been! Congratulations to the happy couple! I could definitely go for some pub fare and tea time right about now. That is one thing I wish I was able to do when I was in London–I wanted to have afternoon tea, but our schedule was so busy that we never got to have it (other than at the breakfast table). I’m definitely already thinking about visiting the countryside as we talked about! Yorkshire is on the list! I’m thinking we’d love to see the seaside as well. I’d love to hear more about your adventures overseas!
