Luckily for me, all this activity was organised by my friend, The Good Witch, who had a girlfriend out from the UK for the weekend and wanted to explore some of the cultural history of this country. Me? I got to tag along for the ride - literally, in the backseat of the car.
Here's a pictorial record of what we did on our weekend .....
