First Day in England

Hello All
Believe it or not, I am in England today.
Southampton to be exact.
I am here visiting my dear friend.
We had a lovely day!

(So....do I look excited or what???)

Here we are having a delicious pub lunch.


The Bridge in is totally charming! Inside it is full of antique tables and mismatched chairs. The ceiling is white washed timbers, and the paned windows let in warm sunshine.


I had my first visit to Winchester Cathedral. It is quite the magnificent place. The town of Winchester itself is very interesting. So many things to see! We will be going back to see more.

Jane Austen is buried in the cathedral. There is a lovely exhibit about her and her family. Jane is one of my all time favorite authors. Her books sit on my bedside table. I felt great appreciation for her and her life while standing by her memorial.

We went for a walk along a steam by the pub. It was so beautiful, so tranquil. I thoroughly enjoyed my first day here.

Thank you so much for stopping by.
Hugs,
Terri
