The Costwolds

THIS Saturday we went on a trip with our program to the Costwolds! The Cotswolds are, according to Wiki’s definition, “a range of hills in southwestern and west-central England, an area 25 miles (40 km) across and 90 miles (145 km) long. The area has been designated as the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.”

First we went to Broadway Tower, from which you could see 4 different counties. It was also the coldest I’ve ever been (I’m being dramatic but really, it was chilly).

The view!

Then we walked down to the village and saw some sheep on the way. We also walked through kissing gates, which we liked to lol about mostly just because of  the name. Only one person can go through at a time and then you kind of pass each other so the first people through kiss (or so I was told). Sadly, no one would kiss me.

Then we went to Bourton-on-the-Water to eat lunch.

It was pretty, but also cold.

Then we went to the Painswick Gardens to see snowdrops.

Was this a really good blog post or what? I had fun I swear but the creative juices are just not flowing currently.
