On our way to South Africa we were able to stop in London (well, Surrey, actually) for several days to visit some of my husband’s family. They are such wonderful people and we had an exceptional time with them. Their house and property are simply enchanting and we had so much fun exploring. The view from our bedroom window.

There were several beautiful walks on their property. The history major in me swooned at buildings and infrastructure that was built long before America was even colonized…the bridge in the bottom photo, for example.

We got to meet their pigs…

the chickens…

the peacock…

…and the Shetland Ponies.

The visit to their estate (and watching too much Downton Abbey?) has developed a true fondness in me for the English countryside and reminded me of how much I would love to live in a more rural setting someday.
