    Thanks Andy and Don. It really is a beautiful part of the world and so different from Canada where I live.

    @pdh Unfortunately I'm back in Canada It was just a short trip to London and Dorset.

    @olli Not a Morris dancer in sight but I think I got every other cliche.

    @elroos We didn't make to the swannery - wanted to be sure we could drive while it was still light. It's bad enough driving on the wrong side of the road without doing it in the dark.

    What a cracking set of pictures! Lovely feel to them. I think 3 is my favourite, although there are other strong contenders!

    Gorgeous views, Kathy and such a feeling of times past. Lucky you to be there, no matter how short a time.

    Really absorbing images. Nice work.

    Yes, it is very different from Canada. I lived in Northern Ireland and parts of England for about a decade. So much colour and texture...
