Home Again, Home Again......

So the luminous Mrs. V and I just returned from a two and a half week trip to England. Our initial plan was to follow the Two Moors Way Trail and walk from Ivybridge on the south edge of Dartmoor, northward and eventually through Exmoor and emerge on the north Devon coast at Lynmouth.

After a week or so of that we gave up (more precisely our feet gave out). Also, beautiful as Devon is, it seemed unlikely we would see anything different from the moors, valleys, farms and villages we had already seen. We probably hiked and walked over seventy miles along the trail and in Exeter and Bath before we decided to move on to different pastures.

After a ten mile hike along the Kennet & Avon Canal we took a train to Oxford and hunkered down there for a few days. We decided to then head to Salisbury and use it a base of operations to go to Avebury and Winchester but we got to the city and couldn't find a place to stay. So we went to London and just stayed there for the last five days of our trip.

I'm tired and I don't have the brains to go into much more detail now but I'll do that later. And picture will be posted to facebook. So be prepared.
