I'm HERE!!!!!!

After a long 10 hour flight, in which I was seated in the vicinity of 10 children...I think every kid on that flight was sitting near me!...I arrived safely in England. Went through immigration easily and quickly and found Sally waiting for me. We drove down the M4 to Newbury and Sal's house. Took a walk through Victoria Park to the town centre shops and went to the grocery store, where I spent my first British £'s on snackfood. A bit later we returned to the town centre for some pizza for supper. Yummy!

Here's a handful of the pics I took on our walk.
The old church-St. Nicholas'

The Snooty Fox Pub, the name made me giggle.
The canal.

The park, look how green it is!!!

The path leading from Sally's house to the park.

I probably won't be updating again until after we come back to Sally's house on Wednesday. Tomorrow we're going to Warwick Castle and Daventry so I can meet the rest of Sally's family.After we stop at the camera shop to see if I can get a battery charger, my one battery is almost drained (I think my camera must have gotten knocked on in my bag or something, the batteries usually last for ages!) but I do have a spare, and it looks like they carry my charger in the store here from their website.

I am so glad that you are there and enjoying the company of Sally.

Isn't England just GORGEOUS?!?!

The park is beautiful.
So similar to Chippenham...
