Scotty's TRIP TO ENGLAND
Front of Windsor Castle
Wednesday June 19, 2002
Today we went to Windsor Castle. When we got there we got our tickets
and got in our tour group. Windsor Castle is where the Queen sometimes
lives. To tell if the Queen is there her flag is up. When we went she
was there. Anyway the guide showed us the gardens and some famous
gates. After that we saw the changing of the guards.Then we went to
Saint George's Chapel in Windsor Castle. We saw the tomb of the Queen
Mum. Then we went to a gift shop and saw a guard up close. They never
move. I wonder how they do that? After that we left. It was a fun day!
It was also my birthday. I am now 12!!!!!!!!!

Today was our first day riding on the Tube. (subway in the US). When
we got there we got our tickets and went to the platform. Dad found
out what train to take. It looked hard. We got on our train. We were
going to the Tower of London but that's another story folks. I think
the tube is swell. Ho Ho what's a tube? A tube my friend is ...
never mind! Just mind the gap! I love the tube.

Today we went to Stonehenge. When we got there we got our tickets and
free audio tour. Stonehenge is a stone circle believed to be a
sundial. It is huge. We got our Christmas picture in front of it. I took
lots of pictures. I saw a burial mound and got to touch a stone. I
think aliens built Stonehenge. We had lunch and saw some sheep. Hairy
sheep loved the food. I loved Stonehenge because it is so mysterious.
It was fun going to Stonehenge!
One of the Walls in Old Sarum
After Stonehenge we went to Old Sarum. Old Sarum is a ruin of a castle
that is over 1000 years old. People have lived here for 5000
years. When we got there we got our tickets and
went in. By the way I got bit by a nettle plant and it hurt! Anyways we went
in. We walked on a chalk path and saw an old well. We also saw some ruins of
a church near Old Saurm. I loved Old Sarum because it is old. I like
