A weekend in the Cotwolds

While Seal was visiting, we wanted to show her the quintessential idea of old England. The Cotswolds are definitely it. Our friends let us use their car and we drove 120 miles to the villages of Great Tew, Lesser Tew, Chipping Campden, The Slaughters, Broadway, Woodstock and many other tiny villages nestled into the valleys of the Cotswold hills. This area is known for its honeypot stone. All of the houses are made from the local stone that is a mellow color of honey. There are also lots of thatched roofs, which make the homes look so inviting, I wanted to knock on the doors and ask myself in for tea.
The first day we walked around was sunny with large clouds floating by. There was a hint of spring in the air and many daffodils, crocus, and fruit trees blooming. This photo captured the feeling of the day, with the girl skipping down the lane.
