From Food To Fascinating Facts

It is great that we can now chose to have a lazy Sunday- after 20 years of regular church attendance!

Today we had what we call a Canadian breakfast. This mouth watering meal is usually about 10am and consists of bacon, summer fruits, cinnamon eggy bread (sometimes waffles) and for a real treat real Canadian maple syrup. Sadly we do not have the latter at the moment as, like Cornish pasties, the best is the authentic product made in the place it is named after. It can be hard to find such a good quality product in supermarkets, or even so called specialist shops! I have yet to find it here.

Talking about authenticity - I have just uploaded our video of our Avebury visit here. Very topical as the talk locally and nationally last week was about Silbury Hill which is part of the Avebury World Heritage site. I pass it frequently on my way to work and find it fascinating.

The BBC broadcast a documentary last week - narrated by one of my favourite presenters/archaeologists, Neil Oliver (Coast and various). It seems there are still no real answers as to why it was built! Once it is open to the public again we really must visit it.

We think Wiltshire is a very special place. Particularly this area with its prehistoric links, spiritual atmosphere and monuments and not least the "wide open skies" that we see as we travel both by narrowboat on the Kennet and Avon and road.
