Okay, yesterday we visited Mr. William Shakespeare's home in Stratford-upon-Avon. Cool little village. (Chilly even...)
Then off to Warwick Castle, which would be a great place to play international hide-n-seek.
Di will likely send photos later.
Today we took a day trip to Oxford and visited the Eagle and Child (The bird and baby) where CS Lewis and Tolkein quaffed their ales and discussed such things as theology, mythology, and the such.
We first stopped at CS Lewis' home "The Kilns" about 4 miles from Oxford U. The girls were encouraged to climb into the wardrobe! We were toured by a girl from California who was a student, and who lived there. Apparently there's a lottery for students to live there...three requirements: Be a student. Be a Christian. Be interested in CS Lewis. So that was kind of nice.
Visited Christ Church and walked a bit along the river. Took tea in the afternoon, and are now back home, warming up, in the chateau de Coles.
Rock n Roll, y'all.
