Oh, Pom, the things you and Dale saw, and the best part is that you got to share the experience with great friends!
This is a "postcard" capture, from the grass-and-floral edge around the water to the fluffy clouds making a marvelous background for the castle's red brickwork. Almost too beautiful to be real!!
So glad to know you returned safe and sound ~ except for the strep throat problem. Stay warm, and drink gallons (or is it liters now? :) of tea and honey, my sweet friend. #11315068

Hi Millie, SSSKiki, Brother John, Jeff, Wm, Linda, Patricia, Miss Ellen, Evy, Isabel, Manda, Mare, Laura LeeLee and Teresa!!! Thank you all so very much.
