You may know by now that Bev and I love horses. Everything about them is majestic, to us. They are pretty big, huge in some cases, yet their eyes are usually gentle. They move with such grace while starting and stopping on a dime. We find everything about them beautiful. We are blessed to have… Continue reading A Visit With A Few Furry Four Legged Friends
From the very beginning of our traveling adventure, many of our friends and followers wondered “How is John about this?” Close friends thought, and some actually said, “he’ll be back in 6 months”. This public display of skepticism is my fault. On many occasions (more than I care to admit) you would hear me say… Continue reading Who Said John Wouldn’t Enjoy This Journey?
Yesterday was our 30 Anniversary. Why we had been telling everyone it was number 31 is anyone's guess. John keeps telling people that he knew his career in banking would be short-lived because he couldn't add. Oh, well, we think thirty pretty great.

On the recommendation of our neighbor, Diana, we drove over to the Montague Inn, to check it out for our 31st anniversary lunch. Luckily we met the owner, Sean O'callahan. Not only did he make sure we were "properly" cared for, but he invited us to be his guests at the races at the Wincanton… Continue reading A Day at the Races
Saturday, October 20 we woke early and found a wonderful email invitation from our neighbor in Henstridge, England to attend the inaugural Blackmore and Sparkford Vale Hunt. Since we love horses so much, and since it was a beautiful sunny, dry day (a very rare thing on this trip to England) we jumped on the… Continue reading A Step Back in Time at The Blackmore Vale Hunt
It is the end of week 4 in North Curry, England and, as usual, we are beginning to have some mixed emotions. We are looking forward to visiting Bradford-on-Avon and Bath for a few days. A walking tour, Instagram photography workshop and probably a cooking class are on the agenda. Then we are off to… Continue reading A Piece of Our Hearts Will Remain On The Road.
Today we went on a walk with Pilot, Nancy and Angus, a beautiful black Labrador, owned by the son of our new friends, Andrew and Susan Meehan. Our dogs had never met Angus before. We were understandably a bit cautious as, our dogs, especially Nancy, can be a tad territorial at times. Not today! Everything was… Continue reading Todays Walk, Routine or Enchanted?
It happens everyday, our walk (or walks) with the dogs through the beautiful North Curry, England countryside. Last evening it was especially beautiful, and fun. Place your cursor over the image to read the caption. It is Saturday afternoon and we are going for a long 2-3 hour walk with the dogs and some neighbors.… Continue reading Evening Dog Walk Over The North Curry Countryside
We had been In North Curry, England for exactly one week when a truly amazing event happened. It was a gorgeous Saturday morning at the monthly market in North Curry, England, and we were quietly enjoying a cup of coffee surrounded by strangers in a foreign country. We had already come to love this small… Continue reading Serendipity On The Road With Bev & John
