Across the Pond


Tomorrow my wife an I are crossing the ocean for the first time and this is one of the places we'll be going.
Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese was a favourite hangout of a certain Gilbert Keith and his cronies and we plan to take in a meal there for sure. While we're at it we'll also be hitting up C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkein's old haunt at Oxford: the Eagle & Child.
When I think of visiting London, England, I don't really think of particular places I want to see--I just want to be there. There is so much of what I've read and what I'm into that comes from there it feels like going home, in a way.
We'll see how it feels once we're there. It is supposed to rain most of the time. I don't care. I'm from British Columbia.

I'm so jealous of, and happy for, you both for taking this trip. As you would have said in the early 90's: have a wicked awesome time!
