It's ok, make us jealous Sounds awesome so far. I always wanted to see Loch Ness, and Stonehenge too. Very cool that you saw Dozmary Pool!

Haha, I beat photobucket into submission (mostly by resizing the pics for it)... I don't have today's pics on this computer yet, but here are some previous ones...


A little church in Tarring Neville (what did Neville do to deserve that, I asked), where my... great grandparents (I think) are buried.


A view from a lookout near Devil's Dyke, near Brighton... People go hang gliding there when the wind is right. That would be awesome.


Some chalk cliffs, as seen from Birling Gap...


A bit of Brighton Beach and the Pier, including the Helter Skelter


And some ammonite fossils near Lyme Regis...

Wonderful pix, Ali--the fossils are amazing! I'm looking forward to seeing your pictures from Tintagel--who knows, maybe we'll even see King Arthur!

Hi Ali. Glad to hear the weather here is treating you well and you're enjoying England. Have fun up in Scotland. Can't wait to see your pics.

I live in England and im jealous of that. Helter Skelters.

I live in a seaside town though and we have one so that will have to do.

Dn't get into too much trouble.

Theres quite a few stony beaches in UK. I prefer the sandy ones though.

Love the pics Ali.

Thanks guys

I love the pebble beaches, as long as I don't have to walk on them in bare feet - it hurts! I decided I should stick my feet in the Channel while I was in Brighton and could barely hobble the few feet from where I took off my shoes, to where the little waves were breaking. Mum's got a photo on her camera, it's probably highly amusing.
The thing I love about the pebbles is that they're all flint that has washed out of the chalk cliffs as they erode away.... and flint is very cool stuff - you don't really find it in Australia at all. :geology

Got burned again at Tintagel.... every time you turn around, there are more spectacular views, it's amazing. Took so many photos my camera battery went flat just before we were going to leave Now waiting for it to charge up before I can put the pics on my friend's comp ...
Saw some more interesting geology, had some lovely fish and chips, and I have found the official Best-Smelling Shop in Britain. Home made fresh fudge ... you could put on weight just breathing in the air, and they were constantly making more. I bought three bags of it Sooooooo good.

I love Billy Connolly

Here are some more pics...


King Doniert's stone, which is bits of a 9th-century stone cross, which he allegedly erected "for the good of his soul"


Dozmary Pool, which, according to legend, is where the Lady of the Lake emerged with Excalibur...


Me under a pile of rocks, also known as the Cheesewring...


Me on top of another pile of rocks nearby... it was windy up there but the view was fantastic


Part of a stone circle known as the Hurlers; legend has it that a group of men went to play cricket one Sunday instead of going to church, and got turned to stone. Proof that cricket is bad

More soon!
