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.
