Oh our last day on the Haggis tour. We have been having so much fun and now it is coming to an end. We had quite alot of miles to motor today to get into London by evening but had a couple of planned stops along the way. The first was one that made Chris squeal with delight. We were stopping at Sherwood forest, yes the REAL Sherwood forest that begat the legends of Robin Hood and the Merry Men. Chris was giddy with delight donning his hat and hiding behind the trees ready to rob from the rich and give to the poor. This was actually a short stop and we wish it had been much longer so we could have explored more trails and just communed with nature a bit more.
After the forest and legends came something a bit more meaty. We stopped at Stratford upon Avon. This is the place of birth (&death) of none other than William Shakespeare. It seemed a bit touristy to me but I am sure that some people eat this place up. We didn’t pay the admission into his birthplace but Chris at least made some silly poses outside.
By early evening we were back in London. “Sigh” Our week of Wild and Sexy Haggis had ended. We loved this tour company though and would recommend it to anyone. If we had had more time we would have loved to add on one of their Scottish Highlands tours to the Full Monty that we did. Oh well, it will have to be saved for another trip!
We were back on the London Underground by 6 P.M. and on our way to spend the evening with Ryan & Natasha again, who graciously agreed to host us again. We also were surprised and thrilled that they let us share their Canadian Thanksgiving feast with them on our last night in the U.K.! Yeah!!!
