Barbara McLaughlin, EdD and family recently spent a month in England, Ireland and Scotland. They began in London, visiting family in Falmouth, Hornchurch and Watford. They were in Dublin at the same time as Queen Elizabeth but did not see her. However, their bus tours were hampered, their luggage was checked by security before they could walk to their hotel on McConnell Street and they encountered mainly peaceful demonstrations. Back in Scotland, they visited St. Andrews University, where William and Kate met, and walked the Old Course and got their photos taken on the bridge.
