River Severn and the village of Newnham on Severn from Pleasant Stile (Sept. 2011).
I can write with confidence that the United Kingdom is a land of great beauty. I have travelled through parts of England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland, and beauty is not in short supply. I’m not just referring to the land, either. The clouds and sky can be pretty remarkable as well.
Having witnessed some breathtaking scenery I’d expect at some point to become jaded. But just after arriving in the UK last September, I was in awe once again. We drove around a corner out of Littledean and, as the Severn Valley spread out before me, I felt my throat catch.
Another thing of great beauty…the full English breakfast.
This was my first full English breakfast since moving to the UK. I had it for lunch in Newnham on Severn on the way home. And, no, I absolutely could not finish my meal. Note my hubster’s very sensible salad. It was followed by a partial full English, but even he couldn’t clean my plate.
Jaded? Not even close.
