A trip to fairytale England

Last Saturday I traveled to the Cotswolds with the other two lovely ladies of our Bluestockings Group: Dani and Briana.

It was a last hurrah for the year and a wonderful finale to celebrate our friendship at Oxford.

[From a few months ago. Love these women.]

We went to the Cotswold village of Castle Combe. It is where they shot scenes from War Horse and Stardust. And it is absolutely the most picturesque English town I think I have ever seen. 

[Really. It is that picture perfect.] 

[And so of course I had to take a picture with it.]

It was just an absolutely perfect afternoon spent with good friends, good imaginations, cream tea, and walks in fairytale parks. 

I think I'll let the pictures do the rest of the talking. 

[Magical woods where dreams come true.]

[Cream tea--well, hot cocoa--with the girls.]

[This place is actually perfect.]

[Every time it was my turn for a picture, 5 cars would go past before we could snap a shot. So here I am, waiting for a car about to pass.]

[War Memorial.]

[There is actually a place called Unicorn Lodge. Amazing.]

["When there's Tea, there's hope." A truer Britshism was never spoken.]

[We ended walking upon this estate/manor/hotel. It was amazing.]

[Literally in a fairy tale.]

What can I say? It was an absolutely glorious day. And I'm so grateful that I was able to share it with dear friends.
