Thinking of Summer on a cold day – UK Scapes

These are some landscape photos i took during my last trip to London… the ones in this post are all from outside the city from different day trips we took. We traveled to several different areas – Dungeness, which is a lunar wasteland by the sea, and Oxford, home of Oxford University and Harry Potter (facepalm). Dungeness is absolutely stunning, like no where else i have been. The beaches are covered in pebbles and small stones smoothed by the tumbling of the waves, and here and there you can see small tufts of Sea Kale. The fish and chips are to die for and they have a mini steam train that was built to the exact specifications of a regular size train – just mini! There is also a nuclear power plant, ominous in the background as people fish into the sea…




Even tho i am marrying into a Cambridge family, Adam and i spent a lovely day wandering around the streets of Oxford, taking in the sights and even having a spot of high tea – scrumptious! The architecture in the city is absolutely breath taking and made even more so by the tumultuous skies. Also, it is so amazing, especially for an American, do be in such an old city, even the pubs make one feel as if they have been transported back in time….
