Ups and Downs of the Week

We’re in England this week and next, so I’m hoping for no downs. Here are some pics from today.

We were driving on the A303 on our way to Stonehenge today and we were famished. We saw a sign for The Swan Inn that claimed they had great food. We decided to take a chance and turned off the highway. The road took us through a small town called Barton-Stacey and there was The Swan Inn. Very much a small village pub type place. The new owner greeted us and had us ordering pub sandwiches in minutes. Sarah had cheddar and tomato chutney and I had haddock and fries. The sign was correct, great food and excellent coffee. What I wouldn’t give for a place like this near us in IL.

Then it was on to Stonehenge. I have many pics, but I don’t have time to process them all right yet. Here’s one, though. Big day here tomorrow with it being the Autumnal Equinox. I’m not sure what the average crowd is at Stonehenge, but it was quite busy today.


We made it to our B&B in Glastonbury just before nightfall. Very nice place called Chestnuts. This is the view from our room.
