Leaving on a jet plane

Just spent a week at the beach with the g-kids (ages 2 and 5 months) and their parents - our younger son and our daughter in law. Tomorrow our daughter and I leave for England and Scotland. We will visit friends in the south of England, then go to Alyth, the birthplace of my grandmother who emigrated to the US when she was 14. Following that we go to Iona for a few days and on to Chester where we stay in a library! St. Deiniols. Then back to London where we hope to catch up with a cousin who lives there and another friend. It is a leisurely trip - mostly staying several nights in one place with no real agenda. Just will see whatever crosses our path. We have train passes and will not be driving. More when I return - hope to get some photos to post.

When I get back - we will have our DC kids visiting with their 3 year old and 5 month old (only she will be 6 months old by then).

Have a wonderful and blessed trip Ann!

Can't wait to hear all about it. After having been there 10 times in as many years, I have not returned to the UK since 1996 and long to.

Iona... that place calls to me in a special way, one day I will see it.

Ann, your trip sounds wonderful. Have a lovely time. I love England, and long to return at least one more time in this life. I have seen a good bit of the south of England. I'd like to see much more of the north, and I'd love to return to Scotland, too. Oh, and Iona, that too. Maybe one day.
