It could be summer…..

Ok I exaggerate – there are no leaves on the trees but this little shot taken between Bibury and Aldsworth is always picturesque with the river in the far distance. All the snow has gone but its very wet underfoot.

It rarely snows in The Cotswolds so I indulged myself with some photos…..

Thursday, 28th December 2017

It rarely snows in The Cotswolds so today was so beautiful that I thought I’d shoot up onto The Cotswolds and take a few photos.

At this time of year the sun is so low in the sky it makes the light wonderful.

View from Cleeve Hill, Cheltenham – is that the snow capped English Alps in the distance? No its the Malvern Hills

Might get stuck up here?

Emails like this make life worthwhile…..!

Monday, 25th December 2017

I thought I’d share this email with you – this couple were on tour with me this year – wonderful people. I can’t get over the fact that the lady wrote this late on Christmas eve:

Hi Rob!

Jay and I wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year! Thank you so much for your Christmas card. It made me even more “homesick” for the Cotswolds than I already am. Jay and I both miss not being there.

A couple of days ago we were sitting by the fireplace, talking about where we might go on vacation next year and truthfully, Rob, we had a hard time coming up with anyplace that would be comparable to our trip to the Cotswolds. Then we started talking about some of our favorite parts of our Cotswolds vacation and an hour later we just sighed and both said that our trip with you was the best vacation we’ve ever had. Even tonight when we were at my daughter’s for Christmas Eve, Jay talked about our vacation in the Cotswolds. You spoiled us, and we are so glad you did.

I really enjoyed seeing your drone video of winter in the Cotswolds. I swear I recognized the spot where you stopped to let me take photos of the “S” curve in the road (attached photo) only now there are no leaves. I loved this spot!

It is snowing out now so we are definitely having a white Christmas. Next week will be frigid here, 19 degrees for highs. No golf for Jay!

Rob, we sure do miss you. Thanks for the updates and drone video. We really enjoyed them!

Hope all is going well for you. We think of you often.
All my very best to you,
Nancy
