Norwich, Norfolk

A couple days ago, C and I hopped in the car and made the drive to Norwich.  We hit up the castle which had some displays including artwork, various stuffed animals and even a collection of teapots.  We then explored the marketplace which had a variety of stalls selling yarn, dog supplies, clothing, cheese, candies, used books, food, etc.  After picking up lunch at one of the stalls and enjoying it on some steps, we headed off for the Cathedral.   Then we had time to sit down for a pint at an extremely old pub recommended to us by our boat captain in St. Lucia.  The pub, called Adam & Eve, was opened in 1249 and reportedly sold ale to the stonemasons who built the cathedral.  We took a long stroll along the riverside back to the parking garage, stopping for a delicious ice cream cone along the way.  It was a beautiful day and great city.  We will definitely go back!
