The most recent Bank Holiday weekend, Paul was off on a rugby tour (with his team the Old Street Onians)to those well known European rugby powerhouses of Germany and Austria.
Here's a picture of Paul running with the ball when he was playing the Bavarian All Stars (Paul got a try and the team won 56-0). They also played Graz, in Graz and won 12-0 (in a rain shortened match).
If you are brave enough you can check out all the photos from the tour. If you are not so brave, you can check out the teams they played.
So, while Paul was away I got to go on a tour of my own to Stratford-upon-Avon (as opposed to Stratford-upon-the-central-line) with Amber and Leona.
We stayed at a lovely YHA a little bit out of town, enjoyed the countryside, ate at a local pub, and hired bikes and rode to Warwick Castle
En route to the castle we stopped at a flour mill - powered by water (Flour Mill behind Leona, who was taking the photo)
Then at a little church yard.
Finally we had a picnic at Warwick Castle, joined in their CSI (Castle Scene Investigation murder mystery), watched falconry and battle displays and climbed the turret. You will see that we are kind people and let Leona join us, even though she did not wear the proper uniform.
