Summer Travels

Of course, our summer began with TASIS Graduation and the end of school. We then took a short trip to San Clemente to hang out with friends and family. After returning to England, Jeremy visited for about a week. We went to London and saw "A Midsummer Night's Dream" at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre. We also took a day trip down to the coast and stopped at a castle along the way. After Jeremy left, we had our own 4th of July celebration, renting "the Patriot" and making American flag cakes. It didn't compare to the 4th in D.C., but it was better than nothing. We drove up to Liverpool for about a day and explored the hometown of the Beatles. Our next stop was the Peak District, one of England's national parks. We stayed in Bakewell, where they supposedly bake well. We weren't big fans of their famous Bakewell tart, though. The Peaks are filled with walks through moors and towns. We did one near Heathersage, a short walk, of course, since I'm pretty heavy these days. I was very proud to have done a four mile walk being at the end of my 8th month.
