Good Fences

I think my favorite fences are of the British variety.

Looking back at some of the fences and other lovely sights we saw in September of 2013 in Jolly Old England. On this trip we stuck to England and didn’t venture into Scotland or Wales. Don’t miss the thatched roof on this home that was for sale.

On our first day in England in 2013 we drove north from Heathrow and stopped in Stoke Bruerne. Stoke Bruerne is a small village and civil parish in South Northamptonshire, England about 10 miles north of Milton Keynes and 7 miles south of Northampton. We ate and had a stroll along the canal. Our destination this day was the little village of Alton.

Katie started a new eight to five job yesterday. She is very thankful for a job that is easy to get to and does not involve getting on a freeway. I mowed the lawn and weeds and leaves yesterday. Since everyone else was working hard I decided to do my part.

Is it soup weather where you are yet?

It seems that everywhere you look in England you see wonderful stone walls and ornate gates. Here are a sampling from each of the colleges we visited while in Oxford on July 6th.
