Tower Bridge kids
England 2005
A group of Peninsula School kids
goes to England (and France) with the
Independent Schools Cultural Alliance (ISCA)

We have just returned from our marvelous adventures in England. We saw many, many sights and had many uniquely English experiences. It will take a while to sort out all the stories and recollections. Here are some pictures to give an idea of where we were and what we did. All the kids made it safely to their destinations at the end, but I'm still dreaming about counting to eleven in English castles.

To see SOME pictures from each day or activity, click on "First Week," "Second Week," and "Third Week," or the photos next to them. These overviews will be pared down further when I have time, so if they seem too cumbersome for efficient viewing, check back in a few weeks.

To see ALL the pictures that were taken on the trip (except those eliminated for quality reasons), click on the itineraries in the columns below.


This is a quick posting of my pictures as chaperone and group leader for the Peninsula School contingent of the 2005 ISCA England Program. Since I came home with over 1,400 images, I have grouped them to make downloading faster and viewing easier. Each set has up to 360 pictures, usually fewer. Horizontal lines separate the batches.

I hope at some point to have a way of making the original large versions of the pictures available to those of you who might want prints from them. I'm looking into how best to do this. I may post some (I can't do all) of the pictures on a commercial site like Kodak or Shutterfly that allows photo ordering.

If you have favorite pictures that you want to be sure get included in this, email me with your requests (look for the 4 digit picture number that comes before "NEF" at the botton of each photo). Group leaders from each school involved in this years ISCA program and the parents of the kids I led all have my email address.
