More Travel Photos from Britain

A few more images from our last trip to the British Isles.

This path was on the hill overlooking Tintern Abbey in Wales. I love the moss and the exposed roots.

The next one is of a barn courtyard. What I love about this photo is the contract between the red bricks and the blue doors with the large black iron hinges.

The last one is of canal boats. We stayed on one for a week. It was close to Nottingham. I thought it was quite an adventure. Husband was less enthusiastic. It was cramped, for sure. But all we did was sleep there anyway. I wouldn't want to do it again, but I'm glad we did it once. We didn't go to Sherwood Forest, because friends who had gone said it is too commercial and to skip it. So instead, we went to Burleigh House. It was well worth the visit. You can read that post here:

Oh gosh, we were going to hire a houseboat when we went to England last year to see relatives. Can you imagine it with a 10 week old baby? Good thing common sense prevailed.

I enjoyed a look at your travels.

Wonderful pictures; so sorry to hear that Sherwood Forest has gone commercial!

Dear Provincial Homemaker,

A houseboat would probably be bigger than a canal boat, and the rocking of the water may have helped soothe the baby!
