English Beauty

I've got to pace myself posting pics. The last two trips in the last 5 weeks have captured almost 900 photos. I'm off to Las Vegas tomorrow to take more. Sadly, this will be my last trip for awhile but the ride has been fun.
Here is the beauty that is England.

Garden at Rochester Cathedral

The White Cliffs of Dover
My cousin's garden (and bee)

Pride and Prejudice was filmed here. I searched and search on the internet for where it was. Never found the exact location. Hours of googling this and that. I went to a Tourist Information Center (TIC) and she said, "oh yeah, I know exactly where that is, you just drive here" and pointed to it on the map. I could have kissed her.

Mr. Rochester and Mr. Darcy

I now know where they live, I just had a hard time tracking these mysterious men down. They were elusive and timid little forest creatures. Maybe they were hunting on their large, magnificent estates. Next time, I will devote more time to my waiting and pining for these gallant men.

Haddon Hall. Home of Mr. Rochester (at least on the most recent BBC version).

Lovely estate.

Oh, but the Creme de la Creme. Mr. Darcy!! You make me swoon! Just look at YOUR estate!

See? I'm swooning!

You're so muscular!!
