Vikings are us.
When looking around the Napa valley I love the rural nature of the area with its plentiful wildlife that when combined with the proximity of services and shops makes it such an attractive area to live. The difference in the light and landscape make it so different than home, that the thought of living there fills me with a sense of excitement and wonder. There is one thing however that I miss(besides my local Chinese chippy) and that is the sense of history that pervades everywhere in England. I know Napa has history...how could it not?...but it does not connect with me in any real sense. The picture above shows Viking hogsback graves found near my home on The Wirral....a new example of which turned up recently in a local garden! this touchable history is something I love and does give me some pause for thought when I consider leaving it behind one day....but new adventures beckon.
