England Trip
Day 5 June 22, 2002
By Dan, Mary Jane and Scotty Hyde

Saturday June 22 - Bristol - Castle Combe

We get up early and drive about 120 miles to Bristol on the M4 motorway. A British motorway is like a USA interstate only Dan drives 80 MPH in the middle lane of three and am one of the slower cars! The maniacs who drive over 100 MPH are in the far right lane.

We first drive to Shirehampton, a village on edge of Bristol to visit our old friends Shirl, Liz and Mon. Later we drive to Chipping Sodbury then to Castle Combe.

Actually, a medieval bridge but gets its name from a Roman Soldier that supposedly haunts the bridge.
