Two years ago I was getting ready to head out to England.  Sometimes I get wistful about that trip but especially now as I remember what it felt like two years ago to be on the brink of such a great adventure.  So I'm posting a few photos here to wallow a little more in the nostalgia.

Doorway in Old Town Edinburgh.  Thole means to persist or endure.

Sheep below Sty Head Pass.  At Sty Head we encountered the full force of English weather.  As we ascended the mountain, visibility dropped to about 10 feet and the wind blew the rain sideways.

Lake District scenery.

A brief glimpse of sunshine descending the slopes of Helvellyn.

Wheat field in the Midlands.

View of The Needles from Western edge of Tennyson Down on the Isle of Wight.

Flowering Tree at the Brecon Beacons in Cymru (Wales).

The Tube in London.

The fields of Culmstock in Southwestern England.  The land of my ancestors.
