      And I am now reminded of one of the best....

      My daughter at age 14 and I flew to London via Frankfort (BA strike), took Brit Rail to York, rented a car and headed NE. Drove the east coast thru the moors from Scarborough to Whitby, then on thru the border mountains to Peebles Scotland, on to Edinburgh, over to Ayr on the west coast and then back down thru Bronte country and the Dales and back to York. Only got one small fender ding when I backed up a little too close to a stone wall in Ayr.

      We called them the "Orange Roads" cuz that was the color of all the off the beaten path roads. How about that for serendipity?

      Inspiration is hard to come by. You have to take it where you find it. --- Bob Dylan.

      •  Fabulous trip! Wouldn't it be fun to retrace? (5+ / 0-)

        I should have provided more details about my European road trip with my daughter. But it was great fun going about with my girl, even if she did find the concept of a seriously rare hamburger to be appalling. (Maybe that's when she started avoiding red meat--I'll have to ask her....)

        Re: Orange--it was fate.
