Weekend in Swindon, England

We spent a weekend in Swindon, England with our friends Graham, Karla, Stewart, and CeCe.  Friday night, Cody and I took a coach bus to Swindon which was only about a two and half hour drive from the London station.

On Saturday, Graham took us to Avebury Stone Circle where we saw the neolithic stone formations. There were lots of sheep, a small shop, and beautiful architecture all around. That afternoon, Graham and Karla took us to their relative’s farm where their horses are board. We got to meet Karla’s horse, Oprey, who is only a year old.

That evening, Cody and I spent the night at Stewart and CeCe’s house.  We enjoyed Chinese food and a relaxing evening in the hot tub.  The next day, Stewart took us to see Stone Henge, Wood Henge, and Warwick Castle with his son, Ade.  Warwick Castle is a historic castle turned into a theme-park like experience. Besides the historical value of the castle, it was fun for kids who could attempt archery, see shows, and sword fight with each other. Lastly, our last stop was at a pumpkin patch where Cody found some newly born kittens.  Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end – Cody and I rode the coach bus back to London and arrived home just before midnight.
