Now and again it doesn't hurt to stop the world and reminisce for a moment or two, does it?  Perfect times, in perfect places, here are a few of mine ...

What a lovely collection of photos. The river at Maidstone is a view I'm familiar with from umpiring at the junior regatta there a number of times

Why are there so many wonderfulplaces to walk in England and not enough hours to do it all in? I'm meant to be working on a bear order and now you've inspired me to get my walking boots on and get outside. Seriously, have you been to Mousehole at Christmas? The town and several surrounding villages light the streets with pretty lights and decorations, all very tasteful and christmasy - enough to make you tingle.
Happy walking - I really must get those boots on, the bears will have to wait.

Oooh Elizabeth, that's Christmas stay in Mousehole has been on my wish list since I first visited more than twenty years ago! One day!!!!

Hey Katy, fancy that! I've lived in Maidstone for over thirty years, so the river has been a part of my life for a very long time. I love walking along the river to and from Allington and I especially love the view across to the Archbishop's Palace ... must take a pic!

Heidi, you too?! How lovely! I'm just the same, I'm sure Cornwall finds its way into your blood from the very first time you visit. I went to beautiful Kefalonia this year and loved it, but missed Cornwall and can't wait to go back nonetheless!

Soggibottom, I have often wondered if it only ever rains in Boscastle when we visit! Lol! I love Boscastle and was so pleased to see it had recovered from the storm devastation when I visited last time. It was sad to see the Pixie Shop had been lost though ... but on the positive side, thank goodness Roger Irving's pottery wasn't affected - I love his shop and have collected his pottery for over twenty years. Oh and that cliff walk to Talland ... phew! It's great for keeping fit eh?!

Marg and Allabear, I'm so pleased you enjoyed the pics from overseas ... we have beautiful scenery in England and it is a pleasure to be able to share it with you.
