Queueing

25 Jun

The word of the UK part of this trip is “Queue” it means to wait in line. It’s everywhere and just cracks me up. “Please make a single file Queue” haha sounds so silly. Anyway, today we went to Winchester. It’s the original capital of England. There’s a beautiful old Cathedral there that was built in 1079 and was sinking in the marshy ground until in 1906 a deep sea diver worked 6 hours a day stacked up cement under the walls of the Cathedral to save it from sinking.

After the cathedral we walked over to some castle ruins, had lunch and took the train back to Southampton. We ate lunch at a pub and were quite surprised/horrified/impressed with the number of people in there drinking at lunch. I went for a really nice run with Ashley and their dog, Lily when we got back to her place. The run was right along the water up on high cliffs that over look the English channel. You could see Isle of Wight and Portsmouth in the distance.

Tomorrow we are taking a day trip up to Bath.
