After leaving the hustle and bustle of Heathrow Airport, I had decided to stay for a few days in the Cotswolds on the way down to my home County of Devon.
I felt that The Cotswolds would really represent what Americans would think of as being typically English. In fact, Diane said she felt as if she was appearing in an episode of Midsomer Murders!
Here is Diane at Bourton on the Water, along with a few more pics of the area.
We actually stayed at Lower Slaughter , which is one of the prettiest villages, although we thought the name was a little unfortunate. We thought perhaps some grisly murders had been carried out there in years gone by, but, no... one villager told us that the Farmers used to bring their cattle into the village for slaughter., but, rather boringly, I think it was named after a Knight in the days of yore!
We came across some quirky little signs on our walk ....
This is a pic of The Old Mill at Lower Slaughter. We went for a lovely walk all around here, and across the adjoining fields. At the back of The Mill was a delightful little gift shop and ye old tea shoppe!
Next time, I'll show you some more of the tour. This time in my very own little corner of the world.
Meanwhile, I hope you are all keeping well wherever you are reading this Post.
