My last day in England before flying to Dublin from Birmingham Airport, took me briefly to Warwick Castle.
When we arrived there was a low mist making for extremely dull photos, so we went for a walk, and waited … until for a brief few minutes, a few rays of sunlight broke their way through the misty cloud to highlight the castle in a gentle bathe of glow, just as the swans decided to have a swim….but I think you will agree, the wait was worth it ….
and from a pretty English garden perspective:
and yes… I probably should have cropped out those leaves on the left border!
ps… I highly recommend flying out of Birmingham Airport – low stress, easy access for hire car drop off, not as busy as Heathrow yet a reasonable number of retail shops to browse whilst awaiting your flight – my only annoyance was when Aer Lingus unilaterally decided to re-schedule my pre-booked flight for 6 hours later in the day impacting my hire car plans in Ireland with no option to negotiate other than by international phone call – and I was not going to throw more money after bad – they notified me by email a fortnight after I had booked the flight but indicated that any return email would be neglected.
Next stop …. Ireland …..
