1997 Cornwall England
This trip was to do a lecture with a colleague at the University of Exeter, but we made it into a sweep through Cornwall, and back through Shaftesbury and Stonehenge. Unfortunately, we visited Stonehenge on a blustery, grey day and we couldn't get close to the stones themselves. Nonetheless, it is an impressive sight. Cornwall, the Southwest tip of England is full of narrow roads with stone walls on either side. The driving is nerve wracking, but its a particularly scenic part of England. We stayed in B&B's and were treated very warmly. The man in the knit cap is a boat captain. The other man stands in front of St. Michael's castle, which you can walk to but only at low tide. I was so impressed by this man walking along a beach dressed in a sportscoat and tie. That is so British I had to take his photo!
