New Canterbury Tales

Surrounded by snow, we're definitely ready for a trip...at least mentally. To get in the mood, here's a lovely shot Prodigal Wife took in Canterbury on one of our annual visits.

Aaaah Canterbury! I used to visit there a lot when I was a wee nipper: my mum's family's from round those parts. Gorgeous photo!

Oh how lovely!

Do you have plans yet? It's been such a cold, snowy winter. I think everyone is ready for a holiday!

What a pretty photo!! I do so want to go back to the UK for a visit. My cousin just got married at St. Mary's Church in Leciestershire, I so wish I would have had enough notice to go.

Great photo! I have been there twice. Was there this past summer and the town has grown so much since I was there 20 years ago. It was very busy. My favorite Bed and Breakfast there is Queen Anne's House located near the church which supposedly has the head of Sir Thomas Moore buried there.

That is a lovely photo. It looks so peaceful and I love the tudor style(?) buildings.
