Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

English villages

What could be more English than these Thames side village scenes. They are just a picture of peace and tranquility in a very troubled world.

  15. I love it - I have to make it back to England before much longer. I could spend weeks exploring the countryside and villages (and about 3 days in London would be my limit)!

  16. The first house almost looks like a face to me with two eyes and a hat on!

  17. Not too many places in the world look like that - or have names like that either!

    I actually think Jaws is an interesting read if you read as a story about politics and a lack of understanding of the environment, rather than just a story about a big fish!
