The window shades were raised on the Airbus A380 as we descended slowly towards London Heathrow and lo and behold, there below us was England, slightly hazy but visible. We were expecting thick, depressing grey clouds all the way to the ground but no, there it was, plain to see. Sadly we didn’t have a camera at the ready to record this unique ‘weather event’ but, and here is the good part, it is now five days later and the sun is still shining (apart from at night of course). Not only is the sun shining but the daffodils are in full bloom, brightening up everything.
Making the most of this weather we had a wander round the former capital of England, Winchester. The ancient city developed from the Roman town of Venta Belgarum, which developed from an Iron Age oppidum. For the rest of the history lesson please refer to Wikipedia.
After a large cup of coffee and a Cornish Pasty each we visited the “Great Hall” in what is left of Winchester Castle, where the Knights of the Round Table were supposed to have sat. How they managed without falling off the wall is a mystery.
That’s about all since we arrived home. Watch this space.
