an English country adventure!

land that Jane walked everyday with her sister
Today we left for Porlock in Exmoor National Park - west side of England on the water. Fiona has a lovely townhouse there and we left at about 9:45 am with 4 different maps sitting on my lap!! LOL! We went a more country route so that we might pass by Stonehenge, but country back roads are no easy task - hahahah! There are round abouts every 5 minutes and road signs to every nook and cranny...so needless to say, we got detoured a few times. But the universe was sure that we were to be sidetracked enough to stumble across Jane Austen's home!! Seriously! It is a museum and we went inside and then had lunch across the road in a pub! Life couldn't get any better!
door to Jane Austen's kitchen

and then we drove to STONEHENGE!!!
