End of Day 2 Touring...Possible 2 days behind.

So, it is the end of day 2 of touring and day 3 of travel. Day 1 was a right off. Landed in London and found our hotel in Newbury with only a little bit of trouble...always helps to have the directions that you have printed off.

Day 1 - traveled to Avebury and walked around the town and saw all of the stones. Then drove down to Stonehenge. It really is just landed in the middle of a field. Rather amazing! Finished there and drove down to Plymouth at the coast.

Day 2 - started bright and early and started with driving down to Truro. Walked around the town and looked at the cathedral and abbey. Amazing. Continued on down the road to St. Michael's Mount. We took the boat over to the island but by the time we finished climbing and walking around, the tide had come down enough that we were able to walk back to shore. Once finished walking around the town, we got back on the road. We looked for a castle just off the main highway but never did see it. We did however, find a very quaint town and wandered around it. Got back on the road and finished the drive to Exeter where we have just finished having dinner and are settling in for the night.

Tomorrow, we are off to Bath. After that...not sure. Will depend on how much more I can drive after touring.

Cheers to all,
Heather and Liza
