Christmas in England

Inside St. Alban's Cathedral at Christmas

Welcome to the holidays.  Hi, I'm Marilyn Leach and would love to show you some snaps of England bright with Christmas cheer.  I found the Christmas season there to be much more relaxed, with families truly enjoying the contemplative side of Christmas while still having lots of family fun.  Get a cup of wassail and enjoy the pix.

Hello.  I'm Marilyn Leach and I'd love to show you some pics of the English spring.  I've treasured, beyond words, my spring holidays on this fascinating isle and traveling with dear friends who live there.  Come along and enjoy.

Hi, I'm Marilyn Leach and I'd love to show you some beautiful pictures of England. Winter there is a beautiful season to visit.  The weather can be mild and clear, brisk and blustery, or damp with bone-chilling cold.  Some areas often see snowfall while white is a rare sight in other places.  But, it is an island.  So, dress according to the forcast and enjoy the beauty.

Hello, I'm Marilyn Leach and I'd like to welcome you to view some English villages that are much like the village I've created in my Berdie Elliott mystery series.  Theses scenes are in Somerset, in the south of England.  Who knows, there could be an unknown miscreant about and a sleuth to set them right.

It's been about 20 years since I traveled England. Surely brought back amazing feelings, smells, memories.
