Shropshire?!

Now where on Earth is that?! Well, after leaving Cardiff, we aimed to find out, and moseyed up to a farm stay near the quaint town of Ludlow. The roads were awfully narrow, but the sat nav (British version of a GPS) saved the day many times and got us to the farm.

Bog standard English phone box.

Iron bridge near Telford.
This was the first ever cast iron bridge built in 1779. Still looks solid under all those layers of paint!

Many hours on the road and bun-bun finally convinced Estelle to take a nap.

Making friends with a cow at the farm.

Giant mint flavored marshmallows!

Eeeek.
Hope we don't run into a tractor.

Charming bells for sale at the hardware store in Ludlow.
Notice there is a gap where the owl bell used to be... it is now fixed to our back porch!

Eating sammies and crisps in Shrewsbury.
Supposed hometown of Charles Darwin, but nobody there seemed to capitalize on their famous historical figure.

All the (wallpaper) comforts of home.

Exploring Ludlow Castle.

Proudly flying the flag of England (but so close to the Welsh border)
