Bring me sunshine

With only a couple of days before Pete and I fly off to the USA, we are spending the weekend in Kent at my Mum and Dad's house. The sun is shining and the sky is blue and at times like this, Kent is a very beautiful place. We have been to the local pub and also visited my friend and his family who have just moved back to the Uk from The Netherlands - there go our fun trips to Assen!

We went for a long walk yesterday and I took this picture looking across the fields from the Coldrum Stones just below the North Downs. I like the layers of colours in this image. Coldrum is a 4000 year old long barrow and is simply stunning and makes you wonder just why ancient man needed to drag huge stones across counties to build these burial sites.

So tonight we are back in Hertfordshire to sort our house-sitter out and I need to pack my case as the next 2 days are going to be pretty hectic at work.

And on Monday, we are probably up at dawn to watch the Lost finale!


  1. What brings you to the USA? Where are you going?

  2. "Kent, the Final Frontier"

    It's meant to be the Garden of England, isn't it? Presumably it was named so by people who'd never been north.

    Have a great time in the States and bring us back some rock, will yer?

  3. The U.S. ?? Where are you going? Near me? Have a great sunshine-filled weekend.

  4. Get your butts over here to the states...

    Like everyone else, curious to know where you guys are headed to in the good ole "US of A?" Hope you have an awesome trip.

  5. I refer you to the first blog posting on this topic...

  6. Love California. Have a blast.

    Hope your birthday celebration trip is as awesome as it sounds. Really...18 days? I am extremely jealous!

    Have a great one!
