365 DAYS AGO...

Aphrodide ~ British Museum ~ 8.4.10
Three hundred sixty-five days ago, JPE & I were visiting this pretty gal... 

YEP... we were at the British Museum! Our three-week adventure began AT THIS POINT in my blog (in case you missed it OR are new to Silver Linings)...

Unfortunately, numerous photos from this time period disappeared (blogger error - which I haven't fixed yet)! You might have done the same thing?? but, I deleted "duplicate pictures" from my photo library, which deleted the photo I had posted. Of course I still have a copy of the photo, but I've NOT taken the time to upload these photos back into my blog.

This is a long explanation to say, "If you see a weird box, with no photo, that is what happened"...

The British Museum is gi-normous!!! so, we HAVE to go back again, to see the rest of the exhibits!

Where have you VACATIONED? and DREAM of returning to?

outside Amsterdam ~ summer 2005
I've been away from blogging for a week - driven to Northern California three times - to attend a wedding in Nevada City, visited ACE, and picked up SLE after her bar exam & brought her to our place for a 3 day visit! Plus, I had two work days in the office... It's been great to see the girls, but I have to admit, "I'm not young anymore" and "I'm tired!!!"

Summer is coming to an end & JPE & I will return to work in another week! 

We're already "LOOKING AHEAD" & planning for another trip overseas next summer! Ummm... where should we go? Ireland? rent a flat in Florence, Italy? Machu Picchu?


  1. All your travel ideas sound so great. I want to go to all 3 of those places!

  2. I, of course, would opt for Italy... Isn't the British Museum fantastic? I spent so many hours there - one of my favorites was the manuscript room, oh my lord! So you went to a wedding in Nevada City - I attended one there a year ago. Yours didn't happen to be on an estate outside town with gorgeous views into the Sacramento valley? Just asking...

  3. You definately need to rent a place in Paris...that way I can be there some of the time while you are there and have someone in the city I know! And there is so much to see. I really want to spend a week there, but I am a little intimated on being completely on my own.

  4. Carola - the wedding was held at the BlueBird Farm... an earthy, warm, humid evening & we sat on bales of hay covered w/lovely quilts (or folding chairs, which were then used at the tables where we ate a fabulous dinner made from items grown on the farm... The bride & groom stood under a huge oak tree - it was exactly the sort of wedding we would have imagined for this couple. So, NO, it was an estate like yours, but it was lovely - we are used to seeing this couple (mid-30's) in hiking, climbing, outdoor clothes - so to see the bride in an actual wedding dress was a treat!

    Adrienne - I agree - Paris is a treasure-trove of sites... we need to meet for coffee & talk about your trip - sooooonn...

    Blue China - your traveling time will be coming soon! those boys will be out of the house before you know it!

    The British Museum is fabulous... there was so much to see - it was difficult to decide where to go first. We actually enjoyed an exhibit on "Mummification" - it was very interesting...

  5. The museums in London reminded me of the Smithsonian in DC - you could spend weeks there and still not see everything. I liked the British Museum but found it real crowded. It did contain the things I most wanted to see the Rosetta Stone(could barely see it thru the throng of tourists) and the Elgin Marbles(much larger than I imagined). On the other hand, I loved the Victoria and Albert Museum.

    I can't wait to go back to Scotland but I still need to see France, Greece, Ireland, Italy, etc. So many places - so little time.

    PS On the side buttons on my blog - they used to hold all my blog links but when I made a few changes for my impending move to wordpress I lost all the links to the blogs I love. :-(
