Picking up the car was a breeze.  The hardest part was waiting for the airport shuttle.  Once we were on the road we made great time and were are our first stop, Stonehenge, in just a couple of hours.  Traffic in London was a pain, and it seems that it is always bad on the highways.  But despite our unfamiliarity with the traffic signs and fear of driving on the wrong side of the road we did great.  Our destination was Stonehenge, but on the way there we found Salisbury.  A beautiful church town with a well maintained and awe inspiring church.

In the town, people were shopping in the stores along the cobblestone streets.  As we walked along ducks were seen in the river, and the feeling of a quaint existence abounded.  The church sat in the center of a large grass field.  The scaffolding showed that they were busy restoring the century's old building back to it's former glory.  Inside we were fortunate enough to see and hear a youth choir practicing as we gazed at all of the artifacts and memorials throughout interior.  

After a few hours in town it was off to Stonehenge.
