Something else I really think is great are the city centers, traffic free. You can stroll along at your leisure. I had a steak roll and a hot soup to goWalking in the damp meant that soup really hit the spot.
Last night, I put my miserable self to bed. After tossing and turning for a couple of hours...was it my imagination? Things seemed to be easing. By midnight I was sure of it. By 2, I fell asleep.
After a light breakfast, we were able to do some exploring at an antique store not far away. Cara and Colin are pondering a marriage chest from 1681. Things like that continue to amaze me. I think they always will.
The owners were very friendly. I honestly feel as if I could have gone around their shop all day and still been discovering new things. I found an old brass machining tag for Texaco oil in London, that I bought for Tim. We live an hour from the world's first oil well, and he collects oil memorabilia. I knew that a familiar name from an unfamiliar place would tickle him. The gentle!an at the till said, ' let me pay attention here and give you the right change.' He laughed when I said, 'I would be easy to fool...I haven't had a coin lesson.'
We came home to fish and chips and we watched Hamilton while Colin went off to a class.
