Day’s Verse:
There is no one like You among the gods, O Lord,
nor are there any works like Yours.
All nations who You hav emade shall come and worship before You, O Lord,
And they shall glorify Your name.
For You are great and do wondrous deeds;
You alone are God.

Psalm 86:

You lucky duckies, I’m finally posting pictures from some of the things I’ve done lately! This blog has taken no less than FIVE DAYS to put together, so I hope you appreciate it.

Bus Tour to Everywhere

  • On to the Bus Tour to Everywhere, if Everywhere is equal to Windsor Castle, Runnymede, the George Inn, and the town of Bath. Here are more pictures of tourists with Windsor Castle in the background: here, here, here, and here.
  • If I was an intruder, the moat would stop me — its gorgeous gardens would make me want to linger, not attack some forbidding stone walls. We toured inside, but they did not allow photos. Sorry.
  • Here is some more contrast between the Queen’s personal area and the well-tended gardens. I hear Brits are avid gardeners; they certainly pull out all the stops for Her Majesty the Queen.
  • How do the guards not laugh at their crazy fuzzy hats? I think I would probably spend my whole time grinning if I got to wear a hat like that for my job.
  • Although Stonehenge had lots of tourists around it, some of the photos managed to miss all of them.
  • Here is one of my many zoomed in photos. I took lots of pictures, but honestly…it is just a pile of old rocks.
  • To close out Stonehenge, the whole thing (mostly); and a picture of myself that a random guy took for me.
  • The George Inn was ridiculously quaint, and set in an equally lovely, quaint little town with a wonderful old church to top it off.
  • Bath did have lots of Georgian architecture, but it all looked essentially the same to my untrained eye.
  • It also had a 500-year-old church, which dominated the tourist courtyard area.
  • Here are pictures of the actual hotspring, with the stain from when the water level was much higher than it is today; some of the Roman ruins there; and a sort of overall shot of the major pool.

In closing I offer a crappy picture I took out of the window of the bus on the way home. I assure yo
u that the view took my breath away, and I only wish the picture had turned out more accurately to what the scene looked like. The smudgy part is head-grease from the previous occupants of my seat, whose stains marred my view the whole time.

And that, as they say, is that.

  1. For those of us for whom the only way we may see England is vicariously, it is fun to see your pictures. It sounds like you are having a wonderful experience overall. Thank you for sharing it with us.

    For you who are experiencing the Pacific Northwest vicariously through us this summer, imagine a day that is cold, dreary, and very wet. No castles or ruins here, but we do have slugs and one over-eager golden retriever…

  2. A lot of England is, as you say, ridiculously quaint! I would love to see it. We’ll keep that walk in mind. . .
