Wiltshire countryside

Last night we slept in a haunted room in the King's Head Inn. Every 20 minutes, the house would moan and groan and shudder for about 30 seconds, and the wind howled relentlessly.  Luckily, the pounding rock-bass from the pub downstairs serenaded us to sleep.  Today, it rained. We visited Salisbury, Stonehenge, Bath, and Bristol.
