A brief hiatus…

Hi All,

Just in case you’ve fallen behind reading some blog posts, have no  fear! You have time to catch up. We are losing our internet in the cottages for a few days (wire repairs) so you will have the whole weekend to read every detail. So, we might be missing in action for a few days, but we’ll return on Monday with reports of our weekend. We’re going to Newcastle on Saturday for a trip to the Great North Museum, which holds many of the spectacular finds from Hadrian’s Wall and then to a Roman supply base at the end of the Tyne River, called Arbeia (South Shields is the modern name). And then a day off on Sunday!

In the meanwhile, here are a few of my favorite pictures from the first week. Enjoy!

  1. Hey Beth, great photos! Especially the one in the principia – who ever knew that it was really the Romans who invented “YMCA”?! Wishing you guys lots more sunshine! Cheers!
