May 9th, 2013…We Arrive in London :)

After a Very long trip we arrived in England.Jody Lee Guillaume Smith

Al and Jody at Stonehenge. 🙂

We visited Stonehenge. I was hoping to find some magical, emotional connection to the stars..but realized that it was beautifully situated in the rolling hills surrounded by a calm beauty. It does cost you a few pounds to enter the site but there are free audiotour (not guided – a audio player that you use at your own pace). It was very wonderful.

The wonderful lavenham, England.

We later visited Lavenham, a small country side town with tons of swaying buildings…it was hard to believe they were still standing. I hear that Lavenham is quite a tourist attraction during the tourist season but I chose the month of May because we miss that season in both England and Italy by just a little bit. We had a pint at a very nice pub, “The Swan”. It was old and elegant. Quite a proper pub..and always, the girl’s room is in the basement.  Jody Lee Guillaume Smith

Me and the Queen? LOL

 We visited Windsor. I saw the Windsor Castle ..and the Queen was in! She didn’t pop out to say hello or anything…but they were flying the flag for her. The food is AMAZING. My Irish friend Pam made us roast beef and Yorkshire pudding for our first proper English dinner. Why didn’t someone ever tell me that 1) it is not actually pudding & 2) it is amazing!! I had beans on toast for breakfast and it was just wonderful.

Tomorrow we are off to London to stay in a fabulous hotel and enjoy the sights.
