Bath, Stonehenge and Lacock

Today we took a bus into Bath. We walked around for a couple hours, ate a picnic lunch on a bridge and shopped. We met our tour guide in front of the Abbey of Bath. He took us on a tour in his van with about ten other people through the countryside, past cottages with thatched roofs, farmhouses and pubs . It took about an hour to get to Stonehenge , after that we went to Lacock National Trust, a village that has been in many movies including two of my favorites, Harry Potter and Pride and Prejudice ! Now we are trying to get the Laundry here to work. I just rang out our clothes by hand and put them thru the dryer again. It's late and we wake up early for our bus to London tomorrow. As of tomorrow, I will be without a computer for the next five days. Monday is London, Tuesday we fly to Rome, Thursday we fly to Paris and we will be back here Friday night. So until then- Cheers!

The River Avon, and the Pulteney Bridge

Arch by the Roman Baths

Our lunch, delicious Pasties (rhymes with nasty).

There are really just no words to describe actually being there. And it is NOT just a pile of rocks in the middle of nowhere, like some flight attendant friend of mine who shall remain nameless, said. John and I walked the whole way around it (not too far) and took pictures from every angle. Time flew by, when I asked someone the time, we had only five minutes to get back to the bus! It felt like we had just got there.

first there was Strawhenge , then there was Stickhenge.......

Your pictures are too awesome. It is so beautiful out there. I hope the English appreciate it all!

It even looks better that England in EPCOT, but I'm sure that's just a trick of the camera...

BTW - this is my first blog comment ever! Very exciting.

Keep posting if possible!
