We lived in England from 1995–1998. I regret that a digital cameras was not yet part of my life then. However, when we flew to live in Africa on 2005, we stopped in England, so I had the chance to capture a few old memories in a new way.
We visited the town we lived in for most of our time in England — Thame. (Curiously, that is pronounced “tame” and not “tem” like the Thames River.)
The most storybook pub in Thame is The Bird Cage. And there are bird cages over the bar area.
Thame was a great place to live. We enjoyed being able to walk to the doctor, grocery store, school — and just about everywhere but our church and work. It was wonderful to be surrounded by buildings that were much older than America. And best of all were our friends. We still keep up with some of them. (One of the dearest families from that time are visiting us in Colorado this summer!)
