We are arriving to begin our day out in the country.
We had a lovely day in the Cotswolds. Seeing such interesting places like Blenheim Palace, Stow-on-the-Wold, Chipping Norton and Bourton-on-the-Water. How could we go wrong with names like these? Most of the places were smallish towns or even villages. We were looking for a real country pub that was off the beaten track for lunch and saw a small sign on the A44 for the small village of Broadwell. We were able to travel down the country lane just like in the movies where someone must give way to get two cars to pass each other. The village was lovely and "The Fox Inn" was just what we had wanted. The village has about 300 residents and was just as quaint as we had wanted it.
Driving on the other side of the road was a little hectic and, although Jim did a good job, we were all relieved to get home about 4:00. We were all intact, including the car. We all voted to walk to dinner. It is so much more comfortable than driving and you don't have to be searching for a parking spot all the time.
Going to Hemel Hempstead today to see our daughter
This is the country seat of the Duke of Marlborough, but he wasn't in residence. Must have heard we were coming.
