A day out in St Albans
Henry had prepared and we had maps and walking tours to study before we left.
St Albans is a very old town and I even think it is a chathedral city...since it has a cathedral. We went inside and it was really huge...huge huge.
The romans didn't call St Albans St Albans... they called it Veru-lam-ium...Verulamium...I wonder how they came up with that name...it's a pitty theye were not around any longer so we could ask.
St Albans is really pretty and it has a huge lake with lots of birds. Henry and I watched the birds for a while, but then it started to rain and we had pancakes.
If we had stayed until the weekend we could have taken part in the Mammoth Onion Judging Competition, but we had to leave and besides, we had no mommoth onions.
Tiddlywink is my favourite village name.
After a lovely tea and cake stop at nice garden center we went home. It was a really nice day I think.
