Today we did a full day tour. First stop was Windsor Castle, which was very neat. Turns out we took the tour just in time because after we left they cleared castle because of Irish bomb threats. We have no idea if it is "big" news in the states but the Queen is visiting Ireland this week. We dodged that bullet too because we left Ireland the day before she arrived. They closed the streets off 3 full days before she arrived. Also, if you saw the news today, she laid a wreath at the monument for Irish soldiers who died in their fight for independence. Our hotel was less than one block from that monument. It was interesting to see all that in our first visit to isles. After Windsor we went to Bath, which is a very interesting town with an amazing history. Last stop of the day: Stonehenge. One of those natural wonders of the world that everyone knows about. It was very cool to lay eyes on it. We'll try and get some pictures up tomorrow.
