Uh, Oh, I had Better be Patient

Heading out to Nottingham.........and, believe me, these signs spoke the truth.
Whenever you are traveling abroad, make sure you check the status of public transportation, especially on the weekend.

Central England, Here I Come!

I love the train the best!  Riding the rails is in my first adventure was on a train.
I am on my way to Robin Hood the East Midlands.

High, Ho, Robin Hood?

Whew, to step back in time is to visit this famous city in the East Midlands, England.  It's just a short 127 mile train ride from London.  It was cold there......make sure you bring a jacket and a sweater, even if it's summer!

Privileges of the Politically Connected

Elle and I are standing in front of the Lord Mayor of Nottinghams's car, a fancy Jaguar.  He'll never get a ticket because that's one of the benefits of being the leader of the city.  He can park anywhere!

Lifting My Spirits

Looking at beautiful flowers, trees, shrubs makes one feel has proven it!  I loved this planter in Nottingham.  Doesn't it make you feel better right now?

A Castle is Just a Big, Stone Fort

I am about to enter Nottingham Castle.  I love being in England because I can see and experience life long ago.......Medieval this case.

The Road to Robin Hood

Look at that craftmanship.  This brick pathway of Nottingham Castle was built more than 1,000 years ago!  500 years before Columbus reached the New World.

The Original Robin Hood

So what do you think?  Was Robing Hood real or fiction?
