While visiting Rick and Cheryl's family in Northern England, we got a chance to visit some small towns. And we saw castles.
[I capture the castle.]
[Here is the castle. It is called Spofforth Castle and was an important place during the War of the Roses.]
[I think it is beautiful how these flowers grow out of the castle. I also saw a lot of flowers doing this in tunnels. I think there is some sort of lesson to be learned here.]
Also, Northern England is just beautiful. I wasn't able to get a picture of when we were driving through the peaks and heather, but it made me feel like I was in a Bronte novel.
We also went to the Oldest Sweet Shop in England. Is it really the oldest? Who knows. But it did have delicious bon-bons.
And it felt like Honeydukes from Harry Potter. They even had chocolate frogs!
Next up . . . Oxford!
