Touring in Glastonbury

I enjoyed my trip to England. It felt quite different to be in a country where people speak English! We saw cathedrals and thatched cottages:

Glastonbury is famous for its Tor and the remains of its Abbey:

As well as its cults of the goddess and the Mists of Avalon. The shops are amazing! You can find all manner of flowing robes suitable for wizards and goddesses, plus crystals and magic wands and dragons and on and on . . . There is a Goddess Temple where you can train to become a priestess of Avalon (http://www.goddesstemple.co.uk/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=59&Itemid=99) plus ceremonies for the solstice and full moon and Beltane (May Day). Even the outdoor markets offer flowing robes:

On Sunday, Ruth and her friend Steve and I went out for a Sunday lunch of - what else? - Roast Beef and Yorkshire Pudding!

We stopped at Compton Dundon to pay homage to a 1700 year old yew tree:

After lunch, we visited Bishop's Palace in Wells. Here's the gate to get in:

Here are Steve and Ruth at Bishop's Palace:

We had to park Steve's Toyota outside the gates - unlike those who arrived in Austins and got to park inside the gates:

Steve had to take his car and go back to work in London so Ruth rented a car for us to continue our visits. Can you guess which one is our rental car?
