Countryside Hike

Today has been one of my favorite days here in England! We got on a train early this morning t to Kent. When I first got here in January, one of the members of the Stake Presidency announced that he wanted to take anyone who wanted to go on a ten mile hike through some of England's beautiful countryside. Kent is known as the "Garden of England". It is absolutely beautiful! It definitely was more of a walk than a hike. We walked ten miles through fields, hillsides, farms, golf courses, neighborhoods, and little neighborhoods. For a minute I felt like I was in the canyon!Just getting started.Me and Rocky enjoying some sun.Yay for the only U students: Soj, Anna and Me!A golf course, this is for you dad!Endless countryside.We ate lunch at some very old castle ruins along the way. Betsy, me, Kaitlyn, Soj, and Alyssa enjoying lunch.More beautiful countryside.Yet another old castle we came across.Someones backyard that we crossed through.We stopped in a small local boutique shop, and got ginger beer (don't worry, our Stake President here had it too). Everyone loved it - but me!Enjoying some frozen fruit.Absolutely everything about this walk through Kent was lovely. I loved it!

We finally got home around 6, and to make a good day even better, me and some friends went to Wagamamas for dinner. Yum!
