Our Honeymoon in Great Britain

Windsor, Stratford-upon-Avon, Hadrian's Wall, and Lanercost England: September 23 - 25, 2000

Windsor Castle
Windsor Castle, west of London
We flew in through the night and arrived in London at 8:30 am. We rented a car and drove to Windsor where we had planned our first day of the trip.

Downtown Windsor

Michael acting like a tourist...taking many pictures.

Monty's on the Thames
Monty's on the Thames in Eton
Crossing the Thames, you leave Warwick and enter Eton. Michael and I ate sitting outside on the balcony enjoying a very cool evening on the river. Especially when we had just left Texas' 100+ temperatures for over 60 days straight.

Sitting above the Thames River
Sitting here waiting for supper...very tired after flying through the night. Looking forward to a good nights sleep!

Driving on wrong side
Driving back to the hotel outside of Windsor
Only those that do not drive on the right side of the car will understand the memories of driving in Great Britain! For myself...riding on the left side.

Shakespeare's home
Shakespeare's birthplace and home in Stratford-upon-Avon
Day two and we headed to Stratford-upon-Avon by way of the Cotswolds. As a lover of Shakespeare I had always dreamt of visiting his old stomping grounds.

Downtown Stratford-upon-Avon
After leaving Shakespeare's birthplace and visiting the church where he was buried we headed for lunch. Right downtown, set up very quaintly, was a Mickey D's! If you look right in the center of the picture you will see the golden arches.

Anne Hathaways home
Anne Hathaway's Home in Stratford-upon-Avon
A visit to Stratford-upon-Avon would not be complete without visiting the home of Shakespeare's wife...Anne Hathaway.

Hadrian's Wall
Hadrian's Wall
Day three and we are on our way to Scotland. We have driven up the west side of England and are now visiting Hadrian's Wall that was built when Britain was rulled by the Romans.

Birdoswald Roman Fort

Birdoswald Roman Fort was located in the area we had to drive to to see the existing parts of Hadrian's Wall.
