The Dark Horse in Moseley Village

The Dark Horse in Moseley Village

The Dark Horse is the first place we ate in Moseley Village. We were casing the area for a potential place to live and stopped because we were starving. I am so glad we did and we have returned time and again since. My favorite […]

A short stay at Castle Bromwich in Birmingham

A short stay at Castle Bromwich in Birmingham

When I first visited Birmingham we stayed here for a few nights so we could get the lay of the land. It was interesting. Can’t say I’d stay again but it was an experience and I try not to throw those away. We wandered around […]

Birmingham First Impression

Birmingham First Impression

After spending some time in London the only things I had heard about Birmingham were negative comments delivered with a scoff and sometimes a slight shake of the head. As you can imagine because of this I wasn’t too sure how well I was going to […]

Second Day on the North Downs Way

Second Day on the North Downs Way

On this morning my walking partner and I woke up at about 5:30 am with the sun. The view from the B&B window really was lovely. After lying in bed for a little while I asked her… “Are we really going to just lay here for 2 […]

My first day on the North Downs Way

So a friend asked me if I wanted to make the Pilgrimage with her to Canterbury. Uh… yeah I do. What’s involved with that exactly? Oh…you know… walking for 4 days straight. Oh yeah… I could totally do that. Oh really? This is a question […]

Regent’s Park – Broad Walk and Avenue Gardens

A stroll through Greenwich

A stroll through Greenwich

On a Saturday after we rolled down the Thames for a little river tour we ended up in Greenwich. Off the boat we saw the Cutty Stark but it’s was about  £11 per admission and we weren’t that curious to learn about it that day. […]

Thames River Tour – Millennium Bridge to Greenwich

Thames River Tour – Millennium Bridge to Greenwich

This is the follow up to Thames River Tour – Westminster to Millennium Bridge… the rest of the pictures. The thing I took away from the tour is what the acronym WHARF stands for…ware-house at river front. I still think it’s a cool piece of information. […]

Thames River Tour – Westminster to Millennium Bridge

I got a Groupon for the Red Rover River Tour and my Honey and I cashed it in. We chose an inconvenient day to wait in line for it… it was long. So after waiting in line for about 30 minutes, being constantly bumped by […]
