Today started early with some fruit scones and a tube ride to the car rental place. After a couple of days of crowded tubes it was quite different this morning with basically empty tubes!

 

We were on the road early and headed off to see Stonehenge. Of course Mr GPS told us to take the second exit out of a round-a-bout and we somehow took the first! But not to worry, Mr GPS rerouted us! Yes siree rerouted we were. And I really liked the new route – road with no markings and beautiful scenery. Of course there were no places to pull over – ratz. Could have been wonderful photos. I’m not sure how they manage two way traffic on those roads as they are about a car and a half wide! We pulled waaaay over and it was still hairy.

Stonehenge was pretty cool even with the ton of people there. A little post processing and I can probably get the people out. While there may have been a lot of people there when we were there, there were hordes when we left – so our timing was good.

From there we wandered around the countryside and checked out Bath and several other towns. Old churches fill the towns and are sprinkled on the hills all around.

Of course country means livestock and here the main livestock are, what else, sheep! I’ve come to the conclusion that sheep are to England what cattle are to the US (and vise a versa). The pigs here get to roam the fields and have little huts I’m guessing to sleep in.

And of course it wouldn’t be a blog post without a window picture….
