Spent a lovely afternoon with my husband. We curled up on the sofa and watched a dvd we had taken out of the Library. It was Robbie Coltrane’s Incredible Britain He traveled from London to his hometown of Glasgow, however, this time he took the road less traveled, the side roads.. First, he had a 50 yr old red Jaguar that would tempt me to learn how to drive a stick shift, if it meant I could drive something like that. 🙂
it was three episodes full of wonderful tiny towns and villages. It introduced us to cheese rolling, farmer wrestling and pigeon races. We watched, along with a long married couple, as the building where they both worked and where they met, was destroyed.my favorite part was he spent the night in a “haunted” castle. Chillingham was the name. They had two paranormal investigators there who had picked up some evps during the night but where unable to convince Robbie of the presence of ghosts. He learned how to wash Scottish cows and ready them for show.
It was a lovely way to spend an afternoon and to remind you that not everyone runs on high-speed and sometimes it’s nice to slow down and take the road less traveled.
