First stop was Housestead's Fort.
|the Roman fort included the Wall along one side|
Then we walked 3+ miles along the Wall which was really fun. Lots of photo ops.
|perspective on this is kinda funny -- the body of water is a HUGE lake that is very far down|
|up and down, up and down... beautiful views everywhere!|
At the end of our walk we had a nice lunch at a pub along the road and then got on the bus to our next stop which was Vindolanda. This is a working archeological site and had some really wonderful ruins as well as a very informative museum. Great spot.
|crazy to think of all the people who lived here for hundreds of years|
Easy bus ride back to Newcastle, train back to Durham. Great day!
