bath and canterbury, england

How’d your weekend end up? I lost my football pool. again. I’ve yet to win, but maybe someday.  It was still a great weekend, regardless of my poor team picks.  Met up with a dear friend Friday night and the conversation was wonderful.  You ever just have a great chat with someone, you’re totally in the moment and things start at point A, wander around to point P and end up at point H, and you could talk all night and cover all the points of the alphabet? And then Joe and I went down to Kartchner Caverns for a day trip Saturday and just had the best time, and came home to end the night watching movies, completing the day on an epic note.  Today, obviously football! But I actually accomplished things: got Jones to the dog park, gave him a bath, cleaned house and finally planted some winter seeds in the garden.  Sometimes I complain about how busy and exhausting weekends are.  I often forget how full they make me, how much happiness I cram into two days…

SO. My trip pictures.  I hope you aren’t tired of hearing about it yet, because there are many, many more to get through.  In England, we took a day trip to Stonehenge (pictures here), and stopped off in Bath as icing on the cake. Bath is incredible.  It’s one of the only cities in the world that is built entirely in the same material and style.  Talk about a sight: driving up to see an entire city made of cream colored limestone! It’s still growing, but they mandate that any new buildings use stone quarried from the same place the Romans built the original city from.  It’s rich in history and beauty, and the Roman Baths didn’t disappoint.

On another day, we took a trip to Canterbury.  I could have spent days photographing the Canterbury cathedral.  And because I spent so long in there, we didn’t get to the castle, but it was OK.  Because the cathedral.  Oh, man.  It was one of the most incredible sights of architecture I’ve ever seen.  Just breathtaking!

See what I mean? The skill, the detail, the sheer time it took to build.  If I ever feel overwhelmed and frustrated with a project or goal, these pictures will remind me of what humans are capable of.

I hope your weekend was filled with adventures and love! Until next time, sweet people.
