Someone posted about Bekonscot Model Village on Apartment Therapy recently and a flood of memories came rushing back! This was near our very first house in the UK and we went there ALL The time! LOVED it. I might have to go back as an adult & see how the memories stand up but from the web site it look just the same. Yea!!!

old homes

We finally left the farm & Walter late Sunday night and did NOT want to go. We headed south on hwy 1 to the 101. We passed my childhood haunts and the exits for one of my childhood homes. I never thought I'd miss it up there but I do.

We kept going south towards San Jose and drove right by the exit for Alex's childhood home. We both felt homesick. It was very late but it had been a couple weeks from now, we might have stopped & said hello to A's parents (but they are still in the UK).

Eventually we joined up with the 5 south and on our way home. Alex was a trooper & drove 5 hours. I slept a lot of that and then drove the last 2 hours. Right over the hill to LA & blazing fires in the mountains. Weird.

We almost got attacked by giant tumbleweeds and crazy truck drivers, but we made it home! Safe & sound and TIRED!!!

I found this great website with tons of photos from '77 & '80. Lots of them from Dad's collection that he took. Have a look see:
(you do need the latest version of Flash to enter the site)

Amongst the photos is this one of me! It's from the filming of Empire Strikes Back in London. They needed small people in the back of the shot as everything was built in perspective. So I got to be a rebel troop. Yea!
