They sailed on the Megantic from Montreal. In Scotland she
gathered flowers and took photographs, going to such places as Sir
Walter Scott's home, the battleground at Culloden, and Fingal's
Cave; in England she visited the Lake District of Dorothy and William
Wordsworth and Coleridge, taking several photographs in the famous
stone circle at Keswick; she saw the Brontë's parsonage in
Haworth and their moors; she saw Shakespeare's Stratford and bought
a post card of Ann Hathaway's cottage; she saw London and thought
of Thackeray's Becky Sharpe when they stayed in the Russell Hotel;
and for her, one of the delights of the trip was a visit to the
birthplace of her grandmother Macneill, the old Woolner farm in
Dunwich where she took many photographs and gathered flowers from
the old garden.
They sailed to New York on the Adriatic
and returned by train to their new home in Leaskdale, Ontario. When
she had time to catch her breath, she wrote up her diary from the
notes she had made on her trip and began pasting souvenirs in her
scrapbook - probably at Christmas of that year, since it is Christmas
ribbon that is tied around the fragment of her wedding bouquet and
some of the dried flowers from her trip.
The wedding and the whole honeymoon
trip are worth reading in full in her published diary (SJ,II,64-80).
