Off to a fairly early start (and my drive through Costa's for a mocha) with a meandering drive to Hay on Wye. We drove through Warwick on our way to Bourton on the Water and I realized what a great town it is. I've been there probably a dozen times, but on this trip I was looking at it through the eyes of a possible retirement location. If we could afford it, it would be an amazing location. Bourton on the Water was absolutely gorgeous - very quaint. We did a little antique shopping in Stow on the Wold then off to the hotel, Baskerville Hall. The hotel was great and the room was huge, but a little curious with a massive bathtub in the room itself! No ghosts on the stairs (our Flir camera picked up a cold spot but the carpet was damp), but beautiful Welsh ponies on the property. Gordon's pink gin and a strawberry at dinner in Brecon was great!
