This weekend, despite the rainy weather, we decided to get out and explore a bit more.
England is full of these gardens/parks/etc. where people pay money to go in and walk around enjoying nature for a few hours.
Usually in the rain.
You can see then, how as a Californian, it took a while for me to get used to this idea of paying money to go walk around in a forest, cold, wet and miserable.
But Josh seems to enjoy it and it gives me a chance to play around with my camera, so there you have it.
On Saturday, we went to Painshill Park, an 18th century English landscape park.
There were lots of beautiful landscapes.
And, unfortunately, lots of rain.
I might have been disappointed if that had been the main reason we had gone.
But it wasn’t.
We had heard that there was a Mexican place to eat at in a motorway service station on the way to Painshill Park.
For all of you back in America who don’t know what a motorway service station is, think of those truck stops we have along the freeway, out in the middle of nowhere, where people stop to use the restroom.
That’s where we ate for lunch.
But what a lunch it was!
There is little to no Mexican food in England, and here, at this motorway service station, was something straight out of Chipotle.
They even had churros!
It’s not weird to eat at a service station several times a week, right?
