Todd's Travels

Keswick & The Lake District


Today was another travel day. We left our hotel in Moreton-in-Marsh and headed north. It’s about a four hour drive to our next stop, Keswick (silent w) in the north portion of the lake district. Half way we stopped in Sandbach for lunch. We had very tasty sandwiches at Minshull’s Country Kitchen and then spent a few minutes stretching our legs, wandering about the town center. Deanna found a post office and sent a couple of post cards to our nieces back home. Hopefully they’ll get there before we do.


Bath, Stonehenge, Avebury, Lacock and Castle Coombe

Our first stop on our U.K. trip is the beautiful city of Bath. We landed in London, made our way through a very long line at U.K. boarder control, picked up the rental car and headed out. The trip to Bath was uneventful, however while making our way to our B&B I clipped the side of a parked van. Right hand drive, narrow lane way and me misjudging the turn. Dealing with that after a long flight and a three hour drive was not great. Hopefully that’s the end of our bad luck for the trip.
