May 1 – May 6

Russ and I arrived in Great Britain on May 1st.  We stayed in Salisbury for 5 nights as a transition time getting  over jet lag.  Salisbury is one of our favorite cities and we have visited it on every one of our trips to the UK beginning in 1979, having discovered the ancient hotel, Red Lion Inn, identified as the oldest continuous hotel in England.  The original building was constructed in the 1200’s to house workmen  building the Cathedral.  I have no ancestors that I am aware of in Wiltshire, but Russ does, and he claims St. Thomas Church in the city center as one of his ancestral churches.
