Chalfont St. Giles

Work is nothing but work isn’t it? I reminded myself that it’s important to make the most of the non-work hours and last weekend I thought even if I can’t travel far, I could see something that I couldn’t see if I were still living in the U.S. So Sunday morning in the early sunshine I drove over to a neighboring village, Chalfont St. Giles, home of Milton’s Cottage. When London was experiencing the plague, John Milton escaped to Chalfont St. Giles to finish his epic, Paradise Lost, a staple of English Literature courses everywhere! The village on a sunny Sunday morning is just beautiful. The family wasn't interested so it was just me and TV on the Radio on my iPod.
