Oct 24, 2013 - Stonehenge and Cotswolds

It was a busy day! Stonehenge, Avebury, Lacock and Castle Combe today. Here's some fun pics. Came back to my favorite chill spot at Bath Abbey for a vino before heading home. It's windy, but no rain today. Cold though. Bone chilling cold and that's a lot coming from me! Heading to London tomorrow and looking forward to sleeping in a bit before my train. Cheers mates. Sleepy tonight!
