Broadway in the Cotswolds

Broadway Day 7 004On day 7 of our trip to England in July we decided to visit the little town of Broadway in the Cotswolds. We arrived early which is always a good plan when you know big tourist buses would probably arrive at noon.

Broadway Day 7 051We enjoyed chatting with the locals who gave us many recommendations and opinions about a good brew, good food, politics, and good places to visit in England.

Broadway Day 7 058I better keep moving along or I’ll never be done with my posts from our time in England. This was our last full day in the Cotswolds and on our way to our next self-catering location in Ross-on-Wye we made two stops. One of the stops was in Bourton-on-the-Water and then we stopped at Gloucester Cathedral.

Today back in the real world it’s Friday and I’ve got to get outside and mow the lawn and tidy up a bit. We have a quiet weekend ahead. On Sunday our church will not have regular services. We’ve been called to go out into our neighborhood schools and help the teachers and staff get the grounds and classrooms ready for the school year. We will scrub desks, clean out planters, pressure wash, and do other projects as a support of the communities we live in. We call it Community Serve Day.  Hope you all have a nice weekend.

  1. Lovely visit in the Cotswolds this morning. A great way to begin my day. Our church does a yearly service as worship in the community, too. Have a great weekend.

  2. Very pleasant to not have a lot of crowds when shopping. I recognized the Susan Branch aprons right away. She offers the pattern for free somewhere on her blog, if you feel like whipping one together!

  3. Looks like a wonderful place to visit! I know your church will be a blessing to the school. Our church partners with the elementary school down the street throughout the year. It is a great way to share the love of Christ with the community.

  4. One never tires of those charming old English buildings, thatched roofs, old pubs . . . or I never do, anyway. I really like the scalloped design of those aprons; don’t think I’ve seen any like that before.

  5. Broadway looks like a sweet place to visit and do some shopping! The aprons picture – love it and it reminds me of some great cookbooks I own – smile!
