England Trip

At the end of October this year Michelle and I celebrated our 30th anniversary a little early by taking a trip to England together.  We took about 1,500 pictures, but I'm sure we can eventually pare that down to just a few to post here.  Here is one picture for now.

Until we post more pictures, the map below should give you an idea of the ground we covered.  For the first 6 days we drove to various places, staying somewhere different each night.  We drove over 600 miles and saw Windsor Castle, Stonehenge, Bath, Gloucester Cathedral, Gadfield Elm Chapel, Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwick Castle, Kenilworth Castle, Brooksby Manor, Cambridge University, Canterbury Cathedral, the White Cliffs of Dover, Dover Castle, and of course, the many sights in London. (The underlined cities are the places we stayed.)

Here is a map of our travels before we got to London. The start and end point was Gatwick Airport and we did the circuit in clockwise fashion from there. Driving on the left-hand side of the road, in a manual transmission car, shifting with my left hand, was interesting to say the least; but we made it!
