Celebrating 200 years of Sense and Sensibility: Jane Odiwe

Here are some pictures from my lovely weekend with P and P Tours. The sun shone, and the views were stunning! Everyone had a wonderful time - there's nothing nicer than spending time with like-minded people! I did a reading from Willoughby's Return, and I bet you can't guess what film we watched on television. I slept like a dream - I like to think it was all the exercise I did, though I think the odd gin and tonic or glass of wine may have helped.

There are wildflowers everywhere - if you want to be Marianne for a day, this is the place to do it!
A side view of the house.
Here am I standing in the doorway of the house - notice the columns are not there-they were added for the film, as were shutters on the windows to give Georgian proportions.
In the room where Emma Thompson does her sewing and bemoans the price of beef!
Mrs. Dashwood sat here!
A view over the estuary.
Waiting for Willoughby to sweep me over the threshold!

Oh I am so jealous. I would love to visit the cottage. :)

I have to admit to a rather large dose of envy as well. Such a thrill to see it through your eyes.

Gorgeous pictures...thanks so much for sharing. I love Helen's site for the tours. And so many to choose from tho' they sell out rather quickly.

Thank you Suzan. I know Helen is doing a lot more, so do look out for them!
