We enjoyed a lovely spring, beginning in early March. These flowering trees and signs are in our neighborhood. Note that we live 20 ½ miles from London.
Stonehenge - one of the wonders of the world and the best-known prehistoric monument in Europe. Stonehenge is the remains of a ring of standing stones set within earthworks and dates back to 2600 BC.
Wow! Those stones are heavy! How did they get moved?

Carisbrooke Castle is best known as the place where King Charles I was imprisoned for fourteen months before his execution in 1649. Afterwards his two youngest children were confined in the castle, and Princess Elizabeth died there. From 1896–1944, it was the home of Princess Beatrice, daughter of Queen Victoria.
We enjoyed visiting with the Daniels family and attending a music concert by the boys.
At the Vyne Estate, Suzanna was allowed to play this lovely piano!
Kensington Palace - a residence of the British Royal Family since the 17th century, and is the official London residence of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry, the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, the Duke and Duchess of Kent and Prince and Princess Michael of Kent. In 1981, apartments 8 and 9 were combined to create the London residence of the newly married Prince of Wales and his wife, Diana, and it remained the official residence of Diana after their divorce until her death. Her sons, Princes William and Harry were raised in Kensington Palace.
Apsley House, London - Home to the Duke of Wellington after his victory over Napoleon at Waterloo. It boasts one of the finest art collections in London, a wonderful collection of silver and porcelain, and a massive nude statue of Napoleon. (No photos were allowed inside the house.)
We visited Calvary Baptist Church, Spalding, with our friends LeBron and Libby Williams from Chattanooga.

Trust in the Lord with your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths.
