Fun in the UK


Ready to see the Crown Jewels at the Tower of London.

On our recent 12-day trip to England, Scotland, and Wales my husband and I took almost 2000 pictures. (That's what happens when your cell phone is easier to whip out than your camera.) Most of those pictures are of the incredible scenery, ancient architecture, and, uh, food I ate.

But one of the things I love to capture when I travel is quirky items, things that make me smile, and those that make me say, “huh?”

You can find better pictures of the UK than I have to offer, but here are a few of the photos I snapped that you probably won't see in a guidebook or on National Geographic. Likely for good reason…
