Twenty-one Days in Britain (Days 8-15
This is heaven for Pam as she walked the beautiful gardens in this magnificent estate now in trust for the world to see and appreciate. On this day we embarked on a comfortable coach ride through the splendid British countryside- a landscape which English author Ben Aaronovitch described as being so photogenically rural. Along the way we stopped at Bodnant Garden a historic horticultural gem located in North Wales. We have time to wander the paths of this beautiful estate and smell the flowers. Then we continue on to the seaside resort town of Llandudno for the next two nights. This is how the landed gentry used to live. Our guide told us that many of these enormous estates were now in a trust and maintained for the public to enjoy. All we have shown here is four pictures, but we took over 40 as we strolled through the gardens. Checking into our
Twenty-one Days in Britain (Days1-7)
The national flag of the United Kingdom is the Union Jack, also known as the Union Flag. The current design of the Union Jack dates from the union of Ireland and Great Britain in 1801. Stepping off the plane after ten flying hours out of Omaha, and four hours on the ground in Newark we arrived in Edinburgh Scotland in the morning. No activities were planned this day as people joining the tour would be arriving all day. The first thing that struck us was how easy it was to go through customs, and then onto immigration. We did not get our passports stamped as this is the European Union. This was a major disappointment as we like to have our passports stamped for each country we have visited. We were met at the airport by our guide and brought this up to him. He just shrugged it off as he travels Europe all
The Eagles Have Landed
He is watching you. The bald eagle is the national bird of the United States of America. The founders of the United States were fond of comparing their new republic with the Roman Republic, in which eagle imagery (usually involving the golden eagle) was prominent. On June 20, 1782, the Continental Congress adopted the design for the Great Seal of the United States depicting a bald eagle grasping 13 arrows and an olive branch with thirteen leaves, with its talons. The eagles are flying up to the roof tops on the houses in the neighborhood. This shot is right next door to our home. We have the fortune or misfortune, depending on how you view it, of living close to the Missouri River. It is out of its banks and up to the base of the levees surrounding Council Bluffs. Living on a golf course we have a beautiful lake adjoining the golf course that we
Two Days on Lake Francis Case (Day 2)
Platte Creek Lodge and Guide Service. Wow, Wow, and more Wow! It just can’t get much better than this. My guide and I hit the lake at the same time and struggled through the crowd at the only boat ramp available. Yesterday we limited out, but came back to fish and pitch for another day of action. We got to the boat ramp a little earlier and that helped a lot getting on the lake. On the water the guide hit the pedal and off we went flying across the water to another fishing spot he knew about. Looking out the back of the boat, and this is what 50 mph looks like as we sped across the water. Looking out over the bow of the boat. This machine really flies and it does not take long to cover a lot of water. The white box with the red handle is a
