Leslie visted the village of Cheddar in Somerset, did some cheese shopping, visited a local cave and spent some time in London shopping with Kate. They visited Harrod's and walked about London passed the Globe Theatre, over the Millenium Bridge and paid a visit to the Tate Gallery of Contemporary Art. They attended Evensong in St. Paul's.
Here a few photos of the trip. More to come.
Nick made what I understand was a fabulous Toad in the Hole, a classic English dish made of sausages and what we Americans might consider pancake batter. I am waiting anxiously to have Nick replicate this fabulous looking meal here in Bellingham. . .if I can find sausage anywhere as good as can be found in Bristol.
Kate walks arm and arm down a Bristol street with a likeness of movie actor Cary Grant who was a Bristol native.
Leslie happened to be in Britain on Mothering Day, the British equivalent to our Mother's Day. Here are the flowers she received from Nick and Kate.
Kate and dad-in-law Ray mugging for the camera.
