Beautiful Countryside!

In the village of Mortimer, Berkshire (near Reading, about 40 minutes from London) we stayed with our friend David Weiss' family. They and their many friends quickly became our friends. Such a warm reception! Thanks to the Weiss family, we had a stunning image of life in the English countryside! Next was London and Cornwall.

Ariel and her happy friend Lena (David Weiss and Yumiko Ikeda are her parents) had a riot every day running through fields and swimming in the pool (courtesy of neighbors par excellance Steve and Jackie).

Ariel's Mortimer









Mortimer was a relaxing and happy place. We can see why David is so fond of his home and family. Heath Cottage represents the best of creativity and happy human relations,
