The Eye, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Thought I’d randomly post a photo I took in London in May. The London Eye is a photographers dream. Interesting structure, loads of different perspectives, and it’s situated in a fantastic spot. We’ve been home now for almost a month. I’m missing traveling this morning. Feeling nostalgic about ourContinue reading “The Eye”

More Downtown Lancaster Originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl
Lancaster, U.K. – Downtown Originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl One of the last photos I took in Lancaster when we went out to get pasty and chai.
Pasty Originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl Our Last Day In Lancaster was spent hanging out at Mary and Martin’s place, taking a jaunt to the Cornish Bakery for a couple of pasties and Cafe Nero for some chai, packing, grocery shopping with Mary, going to the University to pick up a couple of t-shirts, and goingContinue reading “Pasty”
It’s Monday, September 17, and we are back in Lancaster. I’ve just done a massive update to my page here with pictures from our sojourn to Barcelona. I’ve not done a very good job in that they appear in reverse. If you want to view things in order, you have to scroll down to whereContinue reading “Back In Lancaster”
On The Waterfront, Morecambe Originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl This building, like many, is abandoned. They are trying to restore it, as they are others in the area, in an attempt to revitalize the town.
The Stone Jetty Originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl This is part of the attempt at revitalising the waterfront in Morecambe.
IMG_7258.JPG Originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl The Wednesday before we ventured off to Barcelona we took a little trip out to Morecambe, the town close to Lancaster that’s on Morecambe Bay. The thing with Morecambe is that is used to be a very hip happening and busy seaside town. People went there to vacation and hangContinue reading “Side Street – Morecambe, U.K.”
Lancaster Countryside Originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl Still on the famous, at least to us, sheep walk. At this point the path has left the canal and enters sheep pastures.
Lake District National Park Originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl Just lovely. We had perfect walking weather. It was not too hot, overcast, and slightly windy.
The Most Common Resident Originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl These are the guys that are everywhere in the lake district and really, all around northern England. They are different looking sheep than we’ve seen in the U.S.
Here I sit, 29 hours after getting up at home yesterday morning, sleepy yet chipper, enjoying a cup of tea at Mary and Martin’s house in Lancaster, Lancashire, UK. They live on, get this, Portland Street. Fitting eh? The trip this long day went very smoothly until we got to Chicago. And really, getting thereContinue reading “Cheers From The U.K.”
