It’s time to catch up a bit, but unfortunately, I can’t post any pictures because we haven’t had enough Wi Fi juice to do a massive down/upload. So, at some point, I hope some pictures will accompany this post. For now, a list: Stonehenge, Salisbury Cathedral and the Magna Carta, Maiden Castle (IRON AGE hill fort), Bodmin Moor and the Hurlers at Minions, Tintagel and Camelford in Cornwall, Glastonbury and the Tor, and Bath. Tonight we crossed into Wales.
Below: Salisbury Cathedral
Below: Maiden Castle
Below: The Hurlers on Bodmin Moor and a ruin nearby
Below: The Haven below Tintagel Castle and a shot of the side that was closed when we got there. I couldn’t have climbed the steps anyway. I barely was able to literally drag myself up the steps on the side which was the main entrance/gatehouse.
Below: the waterfall onto the beach at the Haven and a shot of a sea stack. Tintagel Head is crumbling into the sea.
Below: first pic, the view of the Glastonbury Tor I got to see from the path before the steps. The rest are what Amy saw when she climbed up to the Tor
Below: in Bath at the Roman baths, the Great Bath, Amy and me in front of the great bath, and the place where the overflow from the spring and the bath run out, eventually to the river. Those Romans were amazing engineers.
Our thanks again to Tony and crew at the Cathedral Hotel in Salisbury for much needed nurturing, to Sarah and Graham at the Old Vicarage in Wellington for a lovely room and a tour of their garden (it’s killing me that I can’t post pictures of it, but I will do it when we get home), and to new friends we met there at breakfast, Michael and Dave, two lovely gentlemen who told us about a place we plan to stop tomorrow, St. Fagan’s. I must say, we have met the nicest people in our travels thus far. When asked a question, invariably, the answer is prefaced with “yes, my love,” and oddly, it does make one feel loved, even coming from a stranger.
