We had a much needed good rest on Friday night. We woke up to birds singing and a light drizzle. Our second day in England and the Cotswolds specifically brought us to the town of Chipping Camden. We really enjoyed this town last year with Josh and Laura and it was nice to go back and explore it further. We also had the fun task of buying a few groceries to have at the cottage. We plan to cook an “English Breakfast” at the cottage on Sunday morning. We bought fresh eggs and a variety of sausages at the Butcher. We bought some tomatoes and mushrooms from the grocer. We bought a fresh baked loaf of bread from the Boulangerie. We bought some Damson Preserves and butter from another small shop on High Street. We also bought some local Cotswolds Cheese from the Cheesemonger. After we had all our supplies we enjoyed a great meal at the Eight Bells and had some fun talking World Cup Soccer with the locals. We braved some very narrow lanes to get to Snowshill to see some lavender fields in bloom, too.
Now we are back at the cottage and I hope to catch the Netherlands v. Costa Rica game on the telly soon.
Hope your Saturday is going well.

That shopping for wonderful foods sounds so wonderful. Chatting with the locals and enjoying just the two of you time….can’t get much better than that. Your cottage is darling!
Have a wonderful time in England! Looking forward to more reports
Your photo is quintessential Cotswolds! Lovely. Some light drizzle sounds so refreshing to me right now. Enjoy your English breakfast.
Hope we get to see some of the lavender in Snowshill photos … sounds so beautiful.
Your English breakfast at the cottage in the Cotswolds sounds about perfect! I never realized that Damson plums were an English favorite. We quite like them over here as well!
OOO, I want to have an English breakfast in the Cotswolds someday. 🙂
So so thrilled that you and your sweetie are having such a great time.
Cheers to you, too. Isn’t it funny to go to a different shop for everything on your grocery list? I love the picture of the hollyhocks.
Wow- what a beautiful picture!! Hope your English breckie turned out great and that you are enjoying your time. Travel safely on those narrow roads!!!
That kind of shopping would wear me out! It sounds like a lovely passage in a Rosamunde Pilcher novel.
Enjoy the Cotswolds. For some reason, they’ve been on my mind lately, a place to which I want/need to return.
oh so beautiful.
