After three nights in the hustle and bustle of Scotland’s capital, it was time to head south back toward and into England.
The morning drive included a nice stop in the borders for a fun photo opp.
Now back in England, we headed toward Hadrian’s Wall. Did you know it’s American English to say toward and UK English to say towards? I already knew that before this trip, by the way. Gabby probably taught me that.
The way’s length was quite amazing as you’d see long stretches of it as you drive between sights.
We stopped at Housestead’s Fort, which has the best preserved fort remnants. Still, it’s all foundation and rubble. Your imagination and help from recreation artists are required just as they are for most of the Roman Forum.
After poking about the wall for a couple hours, it was off to Durham. Here, there was of course a well known cathedral. It was stunning inside with it’s high bell tower, arched ceiling and stained glass depictions of biblical events.
That’s it for now. Two nights in York upcoming then we’re off to finish the trip with three nights in London.
