I have taken all of my Flickr picture sets and put them into a single collection, so all of the photos from my vacation are now available from one place. You can find them here. I still have to upload the photos from my last 3 days in London. But those are the only pictures that remain to be uploaded. At some point, I will add descriptions to these pictures but I don’t have the time or patience to do it right now.
I’m heading over to A.J. and Denisse’s in a little while and we’re catching a mid-afternoon showing of The Bourne Ultimatum, which seems to be getting good reviews all-around. I’m looking forward to it.
I’ve uploaded several more photosets:
Miletus and Didyma, Turkey (228 photos)
Rhodes, Greece (75 photos)
Santorini, Greece (163 photos)
Naples, Vesuvius and Pompeii (354 photos)
I’m not going to post much more than this today as it has been a long day, but I am back home, after being out of the country for 21 days. They tree people came and cleaned up my backyard while I was gone, as I was hoping. And I have a sidewalk in front of my house now. Go figure.
I’ve been up since 6 AM GMT, which is 1 AM EDT and it is now nearly 8 PM EDT, so it’s been a long day. I picked up Zeke from the vet and he is very happy to see me, as I am him. I’m going to get some rest tonight, but you can expect more tomorrow, including pictures, and filling in the details from the last day in London.
My flight home is at noon local time today and I wanted to get some more photos uploaded before I headed off, so here are several batches more. The individual photo are, as of yet, unlabeled, but I’ll get around to that eventually…
Korfu, Greece and Vow Renewals (37 photos)
Athens, Greece (275 photos)
Mykonos, Greece (79 photos)
That’s all I have time for now, as I have to head to the airport. I’m scheduled to leave London at noon and arrive at Washington/Dulles at 3:20 PM. If all goes well, I’m hoping to be home by 5 PM, and then immediately go and pick up Zeke from the vet and bring him home. I miss him. More pictures from Greece, Turkey, Italy and London to come. Also updates from Warwick, Stratford and Oxford yesterday.
I love how it starts to get light here at 4:24 AM–and how it doesn’t start to get dark until 9:40 PM.
Today I took the first of two full-day tours of areas outside of London. The tour today was a tour of Windsor castle, the primary residence of the Queen; Stonehenge, the oldest relic in the U.K., and the city of Bath and the Roman baths therewithin. If this entry is less than coherent, keep in mind that it has been a long day and I am writing it while sitting in the hotel lounge, having already consumed a shot of Jose Cuervo Gold (no Patron, I’m afraid) and half a pint of Old Specked Hen.
And for some reason, I have a sneaking suspicion that the majority of the comments on this post, if any, will focus on my consumption of alcohol, and not the fascinating places I visited. But I could be wrong.
Come join me on this journey
