Nice! A coworker just got back from three weeks in Wales, he said it was spectacular.

Cool trip for your family. We saw the platform back in '08 when we were doing a long swing through Europe visiting friends after living in Spain for 5 months. My two favorite series to watch in Netflix have been Hinterland (set in Wales) and even better, Shetland (set, well, in Shetland). London was ok by me but my interest now is more in cycling in the countryside someplace like Wales.

Another Euro trip that I very highly recommend if you're looking for more is to fly into Madrid, do the museums and city stuff there and then visit a few Spanish towns and cities which are all very accessible from the trains out of Madrid. A favorite for me is Salamanca - probably the most beautiful Plaza Major in all Spain, lovely streets for walking, 3rd oldest University in the world, Roman stuff that includes a bridge still functioning, three cathedrals plus other churches to check out. Salamanca is 2 hours by train from Madrid and a nice weekend destination. Excellent mercado open every day (maybe not Sunday). Half way between Madrid and Salamanca on the train line is Avila, a walled city (the old part) and you can walk on the walls and check out the views. Of course there are other options too like Segovia (huge Roman aqueduct, museum), Toledo, Granada, Barcelona and lots of others.

I highly recommend visiting Dartmouth College Ravine Lodge if you haven’t been there in a while. Absolutely beautiful rebuild.

Go, Edge! Pemi loop in the heat. That's a lot of electrolytes. Should check out the new lodge sometime. Local folks involved in felling and trucking in the main timbers.

I'm posting cuz some of the maples near my house think it's fall.

And the wild apple trees. This one was quite tasty.

Late crop of snappers.

The dogs and I think it's still summer. Swimming every day. The one cold night a couple weeks back felt absolutely frigid.
