Left Edinburgh bright and early Tuesday morning to start heading south to London. Stopped in at Hadrian’s Wall on the way and visited the fort at Housestead. Thank God it was misty because if I had been able to see the walk we needed to take to the fort (half a mile, both directions uphill), I probably would have waited in the bus – seriously, it was awesome.

Apparently the Roman’s started building this wall in AD 122 (it stretches east to west from coast to coast) to protect themselves from their northern enemies. Pretty impressive, but if a 17 year old could scale it…….

Oh, did I mention that there are a lot of sheep farms in the English countryside?

Would love to come back some day and see this without the mist…….
