Fall in the UK 2022 Edition – Farnham

Late this fall, we were once again fortunate to have an opportunity to visit the UK.  Craig had some work in the southern area of Surrey and Jennifer decided to come along and explore some new areas.  As you may have read in our previous posts, our past visits have taken us to Devon, Cornwall,

Colorado – Fall in Breck

This fall we made our recuring fall migration to the Rocky Mountains and the yellow aspens of Breckenridge.  Counting backwards it was our 5th visit to Breckenridge, one of our favorite places, especially in the fall.   With its crisp fall mountain air, Breckenridge is our break from the heat of the desert and gives us

Fall in the UK Part 7: London

Amazing how fast time can go by.  Hard to believe we had been in the UK almost 3 weeks.  After our wonderful and busy time in Yorkshire, it was time to start getting ready to head home.  As we have done in previous visits, we stayed in London a couple days to wind down, get

As before, Craig had a week of work meetings and Jennifer spent the week walking, touring, and taking advantage of the nice weather. Salisbury is most famously known for its 13th century

Fall in the UK Part 3: Oxfordshire

After our day at Warner Brothers Studios we had a day and a half before we had to in in Salisbury, so we decided to spend it in Oxfordshire near where we used to live.  We did not have big plans, just a relaxing weekend to enjoy the area and some down time.  We stayed

Fall in the UK Part 2: Harry Potter Studios

Like many people of our generation, our kids grew up with the Harry Potter books and movies.  Thus, by defacto, so did we.  The Harry Potter movies were filmed at locations throughout the UK, but all the studio work was done at the Warner Brothers Studios just north of London in Watford.  The studio has
