Trip to the UK

Just spent 6 weeks in England.  Visited London in the first wee, staying at Kensington.  Did the full tourist thing.  The Big Bus Tour pointed out the location of our one-time governer Bligh, so I dropped in to pay my respects while walking up to the Imperial War Museum.

 

Then we toured the Avon/Kennet canal on a narrow boat for 4 weeks, mooring in Bath, Bristol, Bradford and Devizes amongst others.  Walked up to the white chalk horse on the Vale of Pewsey and visited the stone circle at Avebury.  We hired our boat from Sally Narrowboats in Bradford – highly recommended.

In the final week, we stayed with friends near the Isle of Wight.
