Bright and early Sunday morning we drove over to Stonehenge.
(Please know that when I look at distances on a map I think it can't possibly take that long and I'll be able to get there faster. Multiple times I have been wrong about this but it has not deterred me. Don't vacation with me. I cannot be reasonable, I vacation us beyond the point of exhaustion.)
Tilt your head to the right a little and you won't notice that I didn't hold the camera very well.
I'll edit the photos eventually...
This place was amazing.
Part of the amazing thing is that they have a lot of ways to express that they have no idea why these stones are the way they are. There are many ideas but no absolute truths. Most ideas center around the theory that they were built according to the pattern of the sun.
Our next stop was Salisbury Cathedral. They have 1 of the 4 (?) original Magna Carta
documents that still exist. Although very dated that document was used as a basis
for America's modern political system, along with other documents.
We could only take a few photos inside but it was beautiful.
I loved the courtyards that were everywhere.
While this picture is nice I was hoping it'd be a bit more like the one above,
only with us in it.
Next vacation I'm getting a selfie stick.
As I explained earlier, I have no control over myself and not doing too much in 1 day;
therefor it was decided that we would "stop by" Windsor Castle before going to London.
Believe me when I say that we had to run from the car to the ticket booth because it was closing
in 4 minutes. We just got inside and then had a rushed tour of the place.
Just my speed!
Thankfully Scott never looks at this blog so he'll never know I posted this.
While the outside was stunning the inside was equally as magnificent. Of course, no pictures were allowed. We got to tour many of the rooms and saw an incredible dollhouse that was lifelike in detail. I'm not into dolls but I would love to have that dollhouse.
For our Sunday service we went to Evensong in the nearby cathedral
or chapel that looks like a cathedral.
While this photo seems pointless I just was so amused at how city-centered Windsor Castle was situated. There's this enormous medieval castle right across the street from modern business.
Stay tuned for the next 8 days of London (perhaps with some realtime updates mixed in).
