September in Derbyshire

The weather in England on Thursday was absolutely gorgeous. Warm, bright blue skies.

Here are some images from Derbyshire: a trip to Haddon Hall, and the countryside of the Peak District.

Jane Austen Territory

I have one week left of this trip, and it is being spent in a cottage in England’s Peak District. In the village of Bradwell, with horses riding up our street, the area looks like something out of a Jane Austen adaptation.

We had lunch next to Chatsworth today, and then stopped in Bakewell, where Austen allegedly wrote Pride and Prejudice.

This is one part of England I haven’t visited before, and so far it is even prettier than I expected.

Our cottage:

Good Morning from York

We’re finishing up a week-long stay in York, and nature has given us a gorgeous Monday morning. Yes, it’s cold, but… it’s so pretty!

Also, here are some pictures from our trip to the enormous (and spectacular) Fountains Abbey yesterday (you can thank Henry VIII for destroying it!).
