Sunday pub lunches and all that

This image reminds me so much of just three of the wonderful things this trip has meant to me.

1.  I am pictured with my son Rick and this holiday has meant that I have been able to catch up with three of my four sons as well as spend time with my three grandchildren.  I don't know if I will have a similar opportunity but am so glad it happened this time around.

2.  The British Sunday Pub Roast has been a pretty good experience.  This is my fourth visit to England and British cuisine has come a long way over the years.  The Sunday Pub Roasts have been excellent but we have had lots of other scrumptious food along the way as well.

3.  Hanging baskets on houses and pubs.  So many cottages, business houses, restaurants and pubs have been so enhanced by the use of floral hanging basket displays on their premises.  Linda and I never get tired of it.  You can meander along a country road for a while and turn a corner and there's a village and the houses and pubs have wonderful floral displays - such a delight.

There have been lots more highlights for me but these will remain strong in my memory.

Reconnecting with family is so important, and I'm delighted you had the opportunity to see your sons and the Grands.
