Biking in the Countryside
Our hosts, David and Diane, lead us on a great bike ride over hills and dales, valleys and through the quaint villages of Elsenham, Henham, Thaxted, Duton Hill, Widdington, Debden, Howlett End. It was a beautiful, clear day, and we all smiles on our faces as we sped down the twisty lanes of the pastoral countryside.
Our bike group: Garrett, Forrest, Houston, David, Diane
They also invited us for dinner. Diane made a traditional English delight, a pastie. In the olden days, the miners took them for their lunch. One side was meat and the other side was sweet, like jam. They'd eat one half then, have their dessert. What a great idea! Ours were vegetarian and very delicious.
Just in case we needed to make a phone call!
Beautiful rural area, fields and fields of rapeseed, rolling hills, and of course, cows.
