The Library

Based on the pantheon in Rome.


Fresh berries, nuts, and unsweetened, unpasteurized Greek yogurt. Yum

The Justin Bieber Audi

Apparently this is the same car JB has. I don't know. Although, the hotel was swarmed our last day by teens and tweens because 5 Seconds of Summer and The Vamps were staying there too. Some of the folks on our trip got to see the boy-banders in the bar the previous night.

The Hotel

This is the old part. The new is all glass and chrome. I liked this part better.

Walkabout 2.0

Walking the third morning got us to Chinatown.

Dinner Day 2

Pork two ways and a three layer dessert!

St. Anne's

In the middle of town. They were setting up tents for a jazz festival right outside.

Sky Wheel

Right downtown by the train station.


Took a walk on the morning of Day 2. Saw a lot of really cool old buildings.

Hotel View

Was on the 9th floor. This is the view from the elevator lobby. My room didn't have a view as nice as this.

Gardens at Night

A lovely English garden.


There are several canals through the city with locks along the way.

Dinner Day 1

This was a "proper" cheeseburger. The fries were good...the burger, not so much :)

Flowers, flowers, everywhere!

Love these...and there are container gardens like this all over the city.


Now that's one I've never seen before! It's in our hotel lobby.

Manchester, England

The English countryside...not so country anymore.

It's like they own the place

Jeep Collection

Added a few more toy Jeeps to my collection at the flea market last weekend. Found a shelf and brackets at Restore and got it all set. Some of the toys were mine we found buried in the yard :)

Barn Door fiberglass done!

We finished the fiberglass portion of the barn door for my jeep today. Now I will work on my design for a mounting system as well as a design for relocating my third brake light.
