Greetings Fellow Adventurers!
What a fantastic day – for the first time since January, my wife Alli and I finally had a chance to visit a Castle!!!
We took a trip to Kenilworth in Warwickshire, partly just for the hell of it, and partly to scout out what ‘social distancing’ measures were in place.
It was awesome to be there again, to have a cuppa from the tea rooms (I actually had my first Latte in 6 months!) and walk around the ruins and soak up the history, even in the drizzle (which thankfully made it lovely and quiet).
Kenilworth has some fantastic stories and is a very important castle in our history – I’m sure Alli will write a post about it before too long, so watch out for that.
The one-way system that had been put in place wasn’t too bad (they did pretty well keeping it as openly-accessible as possible) although some areas had been closed off due to ‘pinch points’…
…We may or may not have had a quick peek around the corner of one…
It really was a massive tonic, as was getting to spend some time with Alli again, sans Children. I think even Ratty enjoyed the blast up the motorway!
Farewell my friends.
