Summertime Travels I: Oxford!

Oxford!

We were taking trains back and forth to the Midlands on a recent visit to see family, and stopped off in Oxford. Like London, Edinburgh, and other places, there's always something new to see, even if you've visited Oxford before.

Hope you enjoy a few photos!

The Museum of Natural History









Dinosaurs!

 Look out!

 Tyrannosaurus Rex head

 Wee dinosaur for scale

I couldn't even fit T Rex into the photo frame!




Philosophers and scientists!

 Darwin

 Hippocrates

 Harvey

 Galileo

 Newton


I'm still influenced by my first-time read of Moby Dick a couple of months ago. Look at the size of this single vertebra of a Southern Right Whale!:



Tolkien's pubs!

 The Eagle and Child

 Inspector Morse at the Lamb and Flag

 History of the Lamb and Flag

 Thomas Hardy reference to the Lamb and Flag


The little one happened to be holding a lamb when we were at the Lamb and Flag...


Back in real life, I'm far behind on blog comments and a little behind my goals for ROW80.

The latest deadline for the Carina Press call for submissions is approaching fast, though, and I've got to get my synopsis done this week!

I can't believe it's almost September. Where does the time go?


Which towns do you love to revisit?
