England for Christmas

This Christmas, Heidi and headed back to my homeland to catch up with my family. It has been way to long since my last visit and Heidi had never even met Mum and Dad.
Tamsin and Fabrice kindly picked us up from the airport and whisked us up north to Shropshire, stopping for lunch in Ludlow.
Our Christmas cottage was like the movies, quite a culture change Texas to England.
We had time for one last shop before Christmas, and went up to Shrewsbury. Home for Darwin when he was alive.

We walked around the old town soaking up some historic architecture. The Castle and Museums were closed however, so we settled into a nice Pub, for a swift half.
It had been raining more than usual the last few weeks. The lower parts of the town were quite flooded.

All so soon it was Christmas! Family fun around the tree.

After a massive meal, it wouldn't be Christmas without a nice long walk in wellies. This is Cardingmill valley, east side of the Long Mynd flying site. Quite a bit of water gushing down the hill in all directions.

Boxing day, we popped around to the neighbors place, on a stroll around 'hood.
