Oct 19, 2015 - Moreton in Marsh to Bourton on the Water

We had a solidly restful night's sleep in our "bigger than our RV" bedroom! Breakfast was porridge for me followed by only one slice of bacon and one egg. My stomach just is not elastic enough to hold a full, English breakfast (two eggs, 2 sausage, 2 bacon, fried mushrooms, fried tomatoes, toast and jam, plus baked beans) on a regular basis. I have really become quite a fan of English porridge. It is not at all like oatmeal but has such a creamy texture. Here, they put a dab of cream in the center of it and, oh, I could just float to heaven...

Jul 18, 2015 - Upper Slaughter to Lower Slaughter

Upper Slaughter to Lower Slaughter With laundry hung (no dryer) and breakfast finished, we set off for our 4 mile country walk from Bourton-on-the-Water to Upper Slaughter returning through Lower Slaughter. Before leaving town, we visited the local "flea market" and bought some "millionaire cake" for later. With directions in hand and no map, we set off. The directions were well written - "turn left at the War Memorial, cross the road...go through the metal gate and continue ahead through another metal gate....go through a wooden gate and...

Jul 16, 2015 - Bourton-on-the-Water

Bourton-on-the-water This is such a relaxing peaceful place and our cottage is right in the middle of the village that we went for a leisurely stroll in the village to check out breakfast places - at 8am none of the restaurants nor tea rooms were open! But by 9:30 the restaurant next door to us had opened - so I had the typical English breakfast except with vegetable sausage (??)! Judi B had scrambled eggs and a scone. Back at the cottage we caught up with our blog then ventured out to see more of the Cotswolds. Touring on narrow roads,...

Jul 15, 2015 - On to the Cotswolds

The day has come to leave Shoreditch and move on to the Cotswolds. We are taking the train to Oxford where we will pick up a car and drive to Bourton-on-th-Water. Our taxi came a little after 9:30 a.m. by the time he found our place. We think traffic in LA is bad, but London is definitely worse. The Paddington Station is only 5 miles from Shoreditch and we didn't get to the station until 10:30. Our train wasn't scheduled to leave until 10:50 so we had plenty of time to get on the train and find our seats which we were lucky to find. Turns...

Sep 24, 2007 - Cantering in the Cotswalds

Today we took a Sunday drive down to the Cotswalds for a spot of cream tea. We began our exploration in Woodstock, where we saw a traditional English village with a cobbler, stationer, Harriets Tearooms and a few traditional inns and pubs. We took some long distance shots of Blenheim Palace (where Winston Churchill was born) to avoid the £16 each entrance fee. It definitely looked better from a distance! After strolling down the alleyways with winding stairs covered in 'ivy arches'leading to houses with 5 foot tall doors, we headed on to...
