I enjoy having friends visit, and most people reading this page are welcome to come sample Southampton hospitality.

CHRIS and ANDY
Hot on the heels of the Foot and Mouth crisis, Tim came to visit over Easter, 2001. We went to Avebury and Stonehenge, but had to settle for looking at each from a distance.
Hampton Court Palace satisfied the Anglophile in both of us.

KATHY AND JUILE-ANNE
Kathy and Julie-Anne came to visit in the summer and I took a few photographs before they were off to explore Scotland. The were the finest of houseguests, bringing us maple syrup and glass coasters as gifts (although the request for a Canadian Mountie is still unfulfilled).

We walked along the sea wall at Ocean Village and saw colourful sail boats in the harbour.
They must be thinking of Canada...
Three - well, two and a half - horn players on Southampton Common. Julie-Anne was cold!
