This trip was an amazing trip. Inspired by the Poldark books, authored by Winston Graham, and the 1975 BBC mini-series that followed, Mom has been talking about seeing Cornwall, England for as long as Molly and I can remember. The books are currently being filmed again as a miniseries on PBS (Season 3 coming soon to the U.S. and now airing in the U.K.) If you're a fan, you might recognize some of the places we visited later in the trip.
Due to a little Vacation Research Scope Creep, we ended up seeing much more than just Cornwall, packing a heck of a lot into eight days. This first post covers days one and two...so maybe there will be four parts in all? Can you stand the suspense?
Rather than try to remember all that we learned and surely get something (eh, most things) wrong along the way, I'll link to all of the historical site websites throughout each post for anyone interested in knowing more.
Thank you, Mom, for dreaming up this adventure and bringing me and Molly along for the ride. xoxo
DAY ONE: DFW>LGW, Westminster Abbey, The River Thames and the Tower of London
DAY TWO: Stonehenge, Salisbury Cathedral, Old Wardour Castle and Wareham
With a few goofy iPhone photos from days one and two, I'm going to call it quits on Part One.
