traveling tales of lylah - part 3

After I checked into my London "lodge" room, the first thing I wanted to do was to head to the nearest wi-fi and let my darling know that I'd arrived and hey, it wasn't so bad after all. As a matter of fact, I truly was delighting in this experience - at least so far.



It is strange for me, as an American to see cars on the "wrong" side of the road. Such a charming walk through such a charming English hamlet. And this . . . was such a treat.

I felt funny snapping some photos of this woman's cottage - but I just couldn't help it. The sweet little thing took my breath away . . . and then this . . . .
really took my breath away. . . a Princess Pathway . . . right here in this little tiny London hamlet. Now, how good is God. Grin. Grin. I asked this kind woman - Asian - if Icould take some pictures. She obliged and even told me that her little thatched roof cottage was 200 years old. Get outa here! Really? No joke. Check out the backside of this cottage . . .

. . . this woman said they were re-thatching the roof - by hand!


. . . .just another lovely manor on Bath Road in Longford Village just outside Terminal 4 in London Heathrow.

Oh, wow, that 200-yr old thatched roof is amazing! I've been to England a couple of times and absolutely love it there. Really enjoyed these pics from your trip! :-)
