2016 In Review - Well Sort of...

What a Week! Christmas has come and gone, and as we reflect back on 2016, we are humbled and amazed! Before highlighting back, let's just look at the 5 days since waking up Christmas morning.
After opening presents to one and other, Julie opened her email to discover that she had been featured in an article "20 Fabulous Tree Pictures " by Gurushots – the competition site that they both compete on.

By Wednesday, Bob was working his magic in a competition on the site for "Inspiring Architecture". Suffice it to say that it was a long night and by the wee hours Thursday morning, Bob was in 1st place. Over 4900 photographers competing with almost 18,000 photos boiled down, as he had predicted, to a photo finish (Pun intended). 
Bob won his 1st international photo competition by 15 votes!

Impromptu Photo Shoot and a Bunch of Rocks

After our day in Dover, we headed West.  Before leaving town, we had to stop for one last series of shots that would be somewhat of a hallmark practice of our trip.  You would think after all the walking, we would be ready to just drop and sleep (especially after the jet-lag had set in).  Instead, we stopped at the Dover Castle!

After completing our shoot, we did load up and head West, arriving late in Crawley, just South of the Gatwick Airport.  A wonderful B&B, The Oakhurst provided us a warm welcome, wonderful accommodations, and a very good nights sleep!  We woke up and prepared for our breakfast - the traditional Full English - and were again refueled and ready for a full day on the go!  Great job Jon!

Before taking off, we found ourselves fully engaged in an impromptu photo shoot with two wonderful models!  A mother and daughter team, these two were too beautiful to ignore!

Of course, we came with different intentions, so we finally said our good byes and continued West.  A…
