More UK Fun and Food

Although we didn’t have a chance to do all the touristy things on this last trip to the UK, we sure appreciated things that were really British, like taxis.


or stone fences that divide the green {and usually sheep!}


or amazing homes that look like castles spotted from the train.


How about fish and chips?


Or hot cross buns? Really, I don’t think I’ve ever thought about them outside of our elementary school class learning how to play that song on a recorder. But they’re awesome--the closest thing to yummy raisin bread from the States that I’ve had in a long time!


And then there were some surprises that made us smile: {a speed limit sign}


Or our children:  Have you had a chance to try the walk-on-water balls? Our girls are pretty good at it!


And lastly, some Americana:  So fun to see and be able to buy, yet the prices kept us from splurging on foods we don’t ever get but really can live without!
