|The Shakespeare Hotel in Stratford, had a room|
with a four-poster bed one year
We had a pub book and searched out hidden ones and had the publican sign the book.
|One of our favorite pubs is a haunted one, The Fleece in Bretforton|
Love this country, never worry about the weather, it's usually chilly and that's ok, in fact that's part of why we go, to get away from our oppressive summer heat. But this year London was suffering from it's own heatwave. Many times we give London a miss, but this year our whole time in England was spent in London. Though we've visited most of the tourist sites we decided to play tourist anyway. We had prepaid for the Hop-on Hop-off bus and though we'd only bought a one-day pass they upgraded us and gave us a 2 day pass that included the bus, a boat ride and our choice of a couple of walking tours.
I still get a kick out of all the tourist sites, though we didn't get off till Trafalgar Square where a giant screen was set up, the National Opera was going to be screening an opera.
|Walked across Tower Bridge, first time we'd done that in awhile|
And we walked, miles, 5 or 6 miles a day, and city miles on hard concrete are so much harder than country ones.
I'm not sure I'll ever tire of England, I always say that if we hit the lottery that we'll buy a place there, till then we'll just keep making annual journeys.
