Leaving the Antarctic behind, we had the longest open sea leg of our journey, taking two nights and a day to reach the Falkland Islands, deep in the Southern Atlantic and just about as removed and forlorn a place as we have ever visited.  When first encountered by [...]

Out And About in Oxfordshire

  While in Oxford we made a couple of expeditions into the neighborhood. First was to Blenheim Palace, long home to a succession of Dukes of Marlborough and birthplace of Winston Churchill.  It is huge and magnificent, but even we were beginning to tire of these grand country estates [...]

Oxford: The Ultimate College Town

We’re willing to bet that more than a few of you recognize the room above, not by its real name, the Great Hall of Christ Church College in Oxford, but as it appears in the Harry Potter series of films where it is the Hogwarts’ Dining Hall. Here [...]

  From Devon we continued southwest and into Cornwall, famed at this time of year for its warm and sunny weather, and for the beauty of its towns.  We spent time in perhaps the most famous of them, St. Ives.  Situated beside the sea, it has a lovely [...]

  We disembarked from the ferry at Dover, famous for its white cliffs which the day we crossed were shrouded in mist and the customary English light rain.  We then immediately headed for Canterbury, renowned for its cathedral and its narrow cobbled streets.  Unfortunately Bonnie decided to take [...]
