On to Hadrian's Wall

We made it to England in time for dinner.  I still can't get over how small the United Kingdom is.  The distance between the Cairngorms in northern Scotland and Haydon Bridge, England is roughly 230 miles.  The distance between our home in Kentucky and Indianapolis, which is about the half-way point of a trip up north to my folks outside Chicago, is a little less than that.  And we still have a ways to go...

Hadrian's Wall - Sewingshields Turret-28
Anyway, here we are taking a walk along Sewingshields milecastle, which is part of Hadrian's Wall.  We were a little frayed at the edges by this point, so a quiet walk along the lonely edge of a former empire was the perfect way to unwind.
