European Cows

My friend’s husband took this shot of these cows grazing and they were in a field right next to Oxford University! The day I went to tour the university it was raining, so I did not catch a glimpse of them which was sad because everyone on trip knew I was looking for any kind of […]

Harry Potter Hogwarts Hall

I read the first Harry Potter book, although the rest are on my list to read. When I was in London/Oxford last fall we spent one entire day visiting Oxford University which was one of the highlights of our trip. Scenes from the Harry Potter movies were filmed on the Oxford campus at the Christ Church College. This is my photo […]

Harrods, Selfridges and Fortnum & Mason Oh My!

In October I traveled to England to attend a wedding party for a friend. There were several of us going and of course we planned a few extra days for sight seeing. Visiting London was such an adventure and the bonus is that London was already fully decorated for the Christmas holidays! The store displays were […]

More Than Just a Pub

English Rainbow

I photographed this rainbow in Bath, England. It was the most brilliant rainbow I have ever seen.  It was a large rainbow and the colors were so vivid that they just popped out at you.  Lucky to catch this special sight. It was so amazing that I thought we might actually find that pot of gold!

Bath is roughly 1 hour and 15 minutes from London if you take the express train. The Roman Baths are one of the oldest […]

Swan

Snapped this photo in Kensington Park across from Kensington Palace. No photos allowed in the palace so this little beauty was just waiting to have her picture taken! Swans are always lovely. I love her reflection on the water. She may be my screen-saver in January when it is cold and nasty outside.

Camden Lock

If you ever go to London you must visit Camden Lock and all it’s many markets. What a fun place to visit. This part of town is comprised of many markets, shops and food experiences that would not be typical of London. If you want to buy a pashmina shawl then this is the place […]

I Found English Sunflowers!

Spotted these English Sunflowers in a little Oxford flower market. Wow, you should have seen how excited I got upon spying them! Sunflowers in any country is a good thing. They had other lovely flowers. And more… Notice the cute little decorative worms they sold. (Click on photo to enlarge)

Weekend Cowgirl Adventure

Weekend Cowgirl is finally back in the saddle again! Thanks for all the emails wondering where in the heck I have been and why I have not been posting photos for the last two weeks. Well… (drum roll)… I just arrived home today from visiting London and surrounding areas and what a grand time I had. I […]
