This was one of those days that went nothing like we had planned! I haven't mentioned the various minor setbacks and events that led me to repeat several times, "We will not let this trip be defined by disappointment!", but they were there: Money (already exchanged!) left behind, a fender bender (while we were parked in a Waitrose parking lot!), the British Library was closed ... We chose to focus on the positive instead - we were in England, after all and this was probably a once-in-a-lifetime experience!
Day 3 dawned with us bidding farewell to our first Airbnb - a sweet little flat in Harrow.
|Kaity and me inadvertantly twinning on this chilly morning!|
First stop: Stone Henge! It was different from what we'd expected, being surrounded by farmland and sheep grazing in pastures. You can't approach it too closely, though a family member told us that when she went 40 years ago people could actually walk among the stones and touch them!
The scenery along the way was simply stunning! We were constantly pulling over whenever we could find a spot on the winding, narrow roads just to enjoy the view a little longer. As tiny as our car was, the hedges still came nearly to the side mirrors at times.
We arrived late that afternoon to our most anticipated Airbnb: Munty Cottage! It was absolutely everything we imagined in a delightful English farm cottage.
