Today, we got a really good feel for medieval history. We visited Warwick Castle.
Before I get into the adventure of the day, let's talk about the signs we see on the byways. I love that you don't yield, but "give way". Everything is so genteel. We saw a sign that advertised "Pony Poo" for sale. Such a polite way to say, well, horse …
Today, we spent the day in Stratford-on-Avon. That should immediately bring to mind the greatest English author ever, William Shakespeare.
Shakespeare was born here and grew up in this small town. Here is where he met his to-be wife, Anne Hathaway, whom he married at the age of 18 (she was 28) because she was pregnant.
This morning we were in the town of Tintern. I wished we had more time to spend here. The town was known, until recently, for it's brass, iron and wire works. It would have been fun to look around the old furnaces and mills used in the manufacturing process.

I had to sit by the window to get it to work on my Mac. Other than that, it was very nice.
