The famous sheep

The hills of the Cotswolds

Today, July 6, we traveled by train to The Cotswolds which lie in the center of England. During the middle ages vast flocks of large-boned, long-wooled sheep (Cotswolds Lions) roamed the gently swelling hills in never-ending waves. Immense fortunes were made by the wool and cloth merchants bringing a golden age to the Cotswolds. We settled into the "Cross Keys" Bed and Breakfast in the town of Stow-On-The-Wold (Where the Wind Blows Cold). This bucolic setting is just the place to unwind following the excitement of The Maverick Festival. Meanwhile - back in Bellevue, Patty's niece, Corrine and her boyfriend, Roman are house sitting and dog sitting. They have agreed to pack up whatever remains at the, now sold, Bellevue house, prior to the July 22 closing. Thank goodness!!
