At the beginning of January we traveled to Nottingham in the UK and to Egypt. This is a sampling of the UK photos.

Cool photos! Never been to Nottingham proper myself. Only visited the university there, but never strayed outside the campus. That is one old pub!
😀 yes it is but the food wasn’t stale…
Love the pictures. What, no statue of the Sheriff of Nottingham with an arrow in his butt?
butt no pics…
that is a great idea Lindsay… and not a statue… lets have the present Sheriff of Nottingham with an arrow in his butt.., ahahah… if it was two years ago.. the Sheriff was a woman… no kidding.. lol
I knew you’d like Lindsay’s comment …
great pictures Sue… but what’s with Lake Trent girl??… ahahahha… its the River Trent woman… it flows to the Humber River that flows into the north sea at Hull Sue… lol… but even those white buggies looks frozen in the driving rain,, ahahahha… xxx
Lake, river – it was too cold to pay attention, but as you recall the sun was out, no rain
Lovely photos Sue 🙂
I’ve never been to Nottingham, think I should!
You’d love it –
Very nice, love the buildings… except the houses on Lake Trent since they’re almost carbon copies of each other 😉
…and will you call me crazy too? I walk Eva all the time in just a t-shirt/workout pants when it’s 0C outside.
well at lest you wear a hat, and apparently it’s a river not a lake…. and those houses are in a subdivision I think
I refer to those as “farm” houses. As in they plowed a field and sowed a crop of homes.
thank you Chris – that was funny!!!
Great photos. Loved the Robin Hood statue (I’m a huge fan of the Robin Hood legend) and the Olde Inn. Also had a chuckle over the bird, LOL. I feel like I’ve been on a tour bus. Very cool!
What a lovely comment – glad you liked the bird.
Great photos, thanks for sharing!
thanks for commenting 😀
Never been to the U.K,. perhaps some day. Great photos! 🙂
thanks for the visit again
These are fun pics. I would definitely like to tour Nottingham! Where are the camels?
geeze I’m working n them – hold your water – like the camels do
How cool to see a piece of history like that. I’d be walking around trying to imagine what it was like back in the 1100’s.
Lovely photos, makes me a bit homesick.
Love these pics. Makes me want to go back and live in England. So much more civilized. This looks like a gorgeous little bit of country. I never made it there, but would love to go. The Robin Hood statue seems a little racy with all his knees showing. LOL What’s the name of the inn that dates from 1189? Maybe I can work that into one of my historicals. 🙂 Thanks so much for sharing!
