Margaret and I headed up to the Cotswolds for the day. We trained to Moreton-in-Marsh, bused to Stow-on-the-Wold, and then hiked 6 miles through Lower and Upper Slaughter back to Stow-on-the-Wold. Beautiful English countryside.
|Fleece Alley in Stow. They also have Sheep Street.|
|Butterfly! And excellent blowing grass.|
|Short trek through the woods.|
|Past a riding school.|
|Heading to Lower Slaughter.|
|We took a detour to visit some horses.|
|One of whom took a liking to Margaret.|
Or perhaps just the food in her backpack.
|Or perhaps just her hair.|
|I see you.|
|Following the public footpath.|
|Lower Slaughter. Quaint little town. All stone houses.|
|There's a really old mill. And next door you can get|
homemade ice cream. Delicious.
|What's that peeking around the tree?? A lamb!!|
|A resting lamb. Who didn't like me.|
|So she went and nuzzled her mummy.|
|You know you're in England when...|
|Turned the corner and....were accosted by a group of runaway sheep.|
|The path took us through a cow pasture.|
|Hey there. Don't mind us...|
|And past some more horses in their stalls.|
