We took the pictures below in England during our June 2006 trip to England and France.  These are some of the digital photos I took while in Lincoln, York, and London.  I would have liked more pictures in York, but Chris had a setback with some food poisoning which limited our York pictures.

We arrived in London on June 8th, 2006, and as usual, we stayed at the Bonnington Hotel due to its proximity to the Hertz car rental location about two blocks away.  Lots of fine restaurants in the area and our favorite pub - The Swan.  We began our trip by driving to Lincoln on June 9th, then on to Leeds to see the Royal Armouries Museum (thanks for the recommendation to my friend Roger), then to York (where Chris got sick), then back to London before heading to Paris and on to Amboise.  We returned from Paris to London and did our usual hop-on/hop-off bus and river cruise on the Thames before heading home to Denver the next day (June 24th).

Castle wall of Lincoln Castle. Lincoln Castle court room.
Notice how prisoners were separated
from each other. Unique folding doors
to keep prisoners from ever seeing or
talking to each other.

Uh-oh, another "ghostly" picture at
the Hole In The Wall pub in
York, England. This is the second time now.
And no, it isn't cigarette smoke.

This is the urinal in

were wondering what a urinal
in London looks like.
