In the footsteps of greatness

I had made no plans for this weekend but as Dad was fine I was foot loose! My colleague Trev as bought a Canon dSLR and he is borrowing a lens from Trish with a view to purchase. He is expecting to get it Thursday week but as I'm FAR too nice I phoned her up this morning and we arranged to meet so I could pick it up. We met at Chartwell home of no more than our third greatest prime minister (controversial!) William Spencer Churchill.























The house is very "liveable".

By this time we were a tadge hungry. We both showed amazing restraint and ignored the rather yummy looking rich chocolate orange cake and opted for the Tomato & basil soup.

Then back to the nearby village/small town of Westerham to visit Quebec House were General James Wolfe was born. Wolfe was the man who took Quebec from the French.

What beautiful gardens. I love the dahlia photos and the church looks interesting - great stained glass window pictures.

Wonderful houses and beautiful gardens. I can't believe so much is still in bloom over your way. I'm afraid I would have opted for the chocolate orange cake. I wouldn't have been able to resist.

Beautiful! I noticed the first set of photos showed blue sky and sun... nothing like outside my window right now! So they lift the spirits.
