At summers end we'll be at Lands End...

It all started with a phone call a month or so ago from my friend Nicki......

"Would you like to go to England with us?" she said

"Well yes, yes we would!" I heard myself saying....

knowing that Nicki and her husband Rick who are British, had been to England
many, many times....what an awesome opportunity I thought.

Nicki went on to say they wanted to go to Cornwall and stay
 in a cottage on the ocean.

Sigh....a cottage on the ocean...in England.

Visit St Ives

maybe meet the guy with seven wives....

As I was going to St Ives

I met a man with seven wives

Each wife had seven sacks

Each sack had seven cats

Each cat had seven kits

Kits, cats, sacks, wives  How many were going to St Ives?
 see St Michael's Mount...
travel back in time...

Learn to drive on the wrong side of the road....  

"Think left! think left!"

 Finally ending up in in London

Big Ben
Buckingham Palace
Westminster Abbey
Trafalgar Square
Tower of London
Fish N' Chips......here we come!!
