UK vacation

Dustin and I just got back from our two weeks in England and Wales with his friends , Chris and Jessica, who live in London and also have a country home in Southwold, two hours north of London on the coast. Southwold is a combination Cape Cod and Southampton on a small quaint scale. After two hot busy days seeing London we spent 4 days in Southwold, recuperating, bicycling on country lanes and berry picking at nearby farms, of course always finding somewhere to have cream tea (basically tea with cakes or scones). Then off further north and west to Chirk on the border of Wales to spend a week on a narrowboat on the LLangdolen Canal. Nice slow trip (2-4 miles/hr) so we took turns either walking or bicycling around the area. Beautiful countryside, lots of shep and cows in pastures, flowers and nice people.
I can't seem to figure out how to include the pics so I will email.
Overall a great trip especially for Dustin, lots of rest, good food fresh air and exercise and he looks like his old self. Pet/CT scan tomorrow and results next Monday.
