Day 6 - a day in the Cotswolds

Today we started the day off  with the girls being dropped off at our hotel by the parents of our wonderful billetts from Braintree Netball.  We heard all about the adventure of the Bowling Alley - who aced it on the wood and who needs to improve there Bowling action - I hear Amitee is a bit of a gun and Savahna needs to work on her spin - perhaps a state of origin rematch is warranted upon our return.  Thanks again Braintree for your generous support.  See you guys again soon.

 

Our first stop of the day was Cheltenham- Stow-on-the-wold.  were we visited some of the oldest shops in England - the girls explore the area and stocked up on some old fashion treats.

We then hopped back on the bus and drove towards Guiting Power - I myself may have found a few places where I could live - totally beautiful - such an amazing opportunity to have Mike our tour guide with us - he lives in this area, so we got a number of insider tips. 

We visited The Hollow Pub for a hearty Lunch and visited a bakery - run by a 97 year old woman who works in the bakery 6 days a week.
