Home Again...(in body anyway)

 Ready for a journey...
London


Back at my old school in London. Found my class picture.


 Highgate cemetery is huge and creepy. Loved it.
Yummy crepes in Hampton.

 On the train with my neice.
The Pump Room in Bath. And the ancient Roman Baths.



Ruins in York.


The castle in Edinburgh.
The B and B we stayed in while in Kirknewton. The manse was built in the late 1700s.
On the Firth of Forth in North Barrick, Scotland.




Direlton Castle ruins.

FREEDOM!!!
 Highland Tour...gorgeous.




Touching Loch Ness and exploring the ruins of the castle there. We took a boat across the loch.

Ruins of the abby at Holyrood Palace, Edinburgh.

Back home again to my lads.

Just a sample of my many adventures there. It was amazing. I learned and experienced so much and had a fabulous time. (=

Great photos! Isn't England and Scotland awesome? And their Bed and Breakfasts put ours to shame.

Well hey there stranger, welcome home! It looks like you had a spectacular time. I love the pictures. I have always wanted to go to London. In my mind at least it's the number one romantic place in the world. I'm sure the French would bed to differ. See you around. :)

Looks like a fun trip! The photos are gorgeous, so lush and green. And the photos of the ruins and such are cool. No Nessie on your trip across the Loch? Dang it! That graveyard is awesome! Eerie and overrun with vines.

So many wonderful pictures. I don't know which is my favorite: ruins in New York or the cemetery where you look like you're holding a wand.

Ah! Scotland! I am SO FREAKIN' JEALOUS!!
I haven't been there in 3 years!!!
Urquhart Castle is awesome, but Edinburgh Castle is my fav. I lived right by it for a year and 3 summers.
Did you climb the Salisbury Crags? Love those things.
Ah, memories.

thanks for signing up to follow my blog. I'll have to snoop around on yours for a bit here.

PS. My half-vampire book is set partly in Scotland. :)
