Shrewsbury, at 72,000 population is the second largest city in Shropshire. In this map you can see the Severn River. The longest river in the UK.
Our friends took us there to see the city. Besides I had trouble with our laptop we took. On our third day in London, I plugged our computer in the hotel room, with the adapter we took, and it blew the fuses in the room. Not sure it was the computer’s fault… hmmm suspicious though. But no matter… it damaged the cable. So here I was with emails to check and send a we arrived safely email and wanting to check with my parents who were on a month long trip in Europe themselves. Our paths didn’t cross, but at least we were almost in the same time zone. But my computer had no more memory. My cable was dead. Ros’s computer is a newer one so her ply didn’t work either. So, funny enough, the trip to this big city, was to go to the apple store and check on cables. It wasn’t in my list of places to visit while in England, but hey! I’m glad there was as one there. But on our way to the Store, we saw so much.
I stayed outside looking at these buildings. Oh the constructions… it is fascinating!
Tudor construction is from the Tudor Times, around the mid 1400’s until the 1600’s. With timber framings. So much history, everywhere you look.
I should have gone that Thursday with my knitting. The streets and sidewalks are so narrow. Everything, the roads, the streets, very small. I remember our friends saying how spacious it was all here in Oregon, when they were visiting last year. Yes, it does feel that way.
But as they said, they are limited in land.
The Market Hall was closed that day we went to Shrewsbury. It was where we were going to have lunch, but maybe another time.
