Adventures in England!

A Bright an early morning at 3:45am loading on the bus to go to Wilshire, England in the Salisbury area to see the historic Stonehenge stones to take photos of them at sunrise. The world heritage stones have been there since approximately 1600BC, when it was considered complete. To this day, many theories exist about how they landed there, but the world may never know the truth.

After that we headed to the Salisbury Cathedral in Salisbury. The cathedral, full of history, was so old and beautiful, there was even service taking place when we entered.

A little later, we were then off to see the Lacock Abbey and Fox Talbot Museum. The abbey and manor was so large and beautiful, that even in 2001 and 2002, a few Harry Potter series were recorded there.

After spending time talking to volunteers in the abbey and playing dress up with some of the clothes in the home, we were off to enjoy a delicious classic English cuisine in one of the surrounding restaurants. It was my first time eating stuffed crab and roasted pork.
