Tragedy. Cast. Sad. Angst. Acting. Ennui. Gravitas. Honor. Culture. Yes.
Very exciting… some of my pics have been used, with my permission of course, in the “Lancaster. Morecambe. Etc.” guide. I got credit, no pay. That works for me right now. Building that resume and all. Check out the website. Not much on there really, but if you click the blog link there’s a bitContinue reading “Published… Etc. Guides”
Looking Over Lancaster, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. I’m going to sign off now from the United Kingdom. This, the final view I’m leaving you with from our time here, was taken from up by the Ashton Memorial looking out over Lancaster. You can see the River Lune, the Lancaster Castle, and Morecambe Bay in thisContinue reading “Looking Over Lancaster”

Ashton Memorial, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. We walked from the Castle and Priory on one hill through downtown to the Ashton Memorial and butterfly house on another. There’s a fantastic view of the city, Morecambe Bay, and the surrounding countryside from up there. We went into the butterfly house, the small beast house, the smallContinue reading “Ashton Memorial”
Walking in Lancaster, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. We took a walk around Lancaster a couple of days ago. This was taken in the downtown part of the city as we left the castle priory behind us on the hill and walked through town.
Lancaster Priory, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Here we are on the eve of our return to the states. I’ve just finished uploading all of our photos from our two week sojourn in the United Kingdom. We took nearly 2000 photos. Insane, I know. These last few I’m posting today were taken in and around Lancaster.Continue reading “Lancaster Priory”

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”
Cooking Dinner Originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl Mary and Martin made dinner for us last night… as I type this it’s now just after noon, Tuesday. Dinner was… delicious. They have the entertaining thing down completely. Great food, great house to dine in, great company. It was splendid. After dinner we played a game called Who’sContinue reading “Cooking Dinner”
The Gardens Originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl When you live in Lancaster you usually don’t have room to grow a garden in your own yard so residents rent little parcels of land in this huge area.
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.
Further Out Along The Canal Originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl As you walk along the canal out of town, on what the kids like to call the sheep walk, the scenery is beautiful.
Path Along The Canal Originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl This is Mary and Martin’s favorite bridge along the canal. The effect of the reflection with the bridge and the path is excellent.
Portland Street Originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl This is the street Mary and Martin live on.

IMG_3734 Originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl This is the spot we went for a beer this evening. Great beer. It was a fairly dark ale (I asked for their darkest) called Hard Willie. It was possibly the best ale I’ve had.
