Sometime on or after July 12, 2003, Lettice (England)
I was unpacked very carefully. Unfortunately, I had arrived at a very difficult time because Pepper the family pet dog needed an operation. As she is almost 17 years old it was a worrying time. However, she managed very well, but due to her having to travel to and from the vets I did have to wait for a short while.
Before I could do the grand show of the area, I was taken on a trip into the Town Centre of Newark. This is down in Nottinghamshire/Lincolnshire borders. I visited the Castle, it was Archeological day, so quite busy. I made some new friends and of course I had my photo taken. Newark is well known for being a Royals Stronghold during the Civil War. There are a lot of historic buildings here including the Ossington built by the temperance movement.
I then was on to visit Lincoln, dominated by the famous Lincoln Cathedral, built in the 900's. Also, Alfred Lord Tennyson. This is a beautiful city. The weather has been great so far as Great Britain is traditionally very wet. I have been ducky.
My next visit is to be the Major Oak. This is where Robin Hood hid from the Sheriff of Nottingham's men. Soon be getting ready to visit Amm. It was raining the day I went to visit Sherwood Forest. Luckily, it soon dried up and the sun came out. It was very exciting looking for Robin Hood in the forest. After a short walk, we reached the Major Oak, the traditional hiding place of Robin Hood. Actually, although the tree is 300 years old it is too young to have been around in Robin Hood's day. At most it would only have been a small sapling.
Time now to visit Amm
