We took a day to enjoy some of the sight of Nottingham (where David and Alison currently live) on our third day. We began by going on a walk to the nearby University where David attends school. We ended up walking around a lake/park that is part of the campus. it was beautiful.

I promised my self (and Des) before we left, that I would take more pictures of the two of us and not just the things we saw. About the third day into our trip I started to really appreciate the time I was getting to spend with Des away from the pressures back home. I found my self looking at her with new eyes (actually the old eyes I saw her with when we first met) and I fell in love with her again. It was so nice to be able reconnect. We still argued a few times and had a huge blow up in London over something small but I came back from our trip with more then just some nice pictures; I came back with a more consummate love for my wife.

After our walk with David we went on a few more walks with Alison to Wollaton Hall and Nottingham Castle while David went to work.

While Des and I were traveling back last night from a Baby blessing (congrats Eric and Alayna), we got talking about marriage relationships. It got me thinking about how we flew around the world to see family and go on this adventure. If we had our own agendas and didn't try to share the experience with each other we would have had a terrible time. No matter how far we flew or how many things we did. We went into the trip with a pretty open mind and schedule and it suited us well. As I said before, we still argued but I know that was largely due to us (me) not communicating.
Now that I have this written down some where I can come back and remind myself from time to time that I am not always right. There, I said it... and everyone can see it.
