|Driving by Stonehenge unexpectedly|

Once we unloaded the car we went grocery shopping at Tesco to buy supplies for our meals and snacks. At the end of the day we were all tired and hungry so we crashed at the chalet for the rest of the night and rested for a week of FUN!!!!
The trip to Cornwall started off with a few surprises. About halfway through our short drive we rain into unexplained traffic. After a half hour of waiting we realized the traffic was due to everyone trying to turn off the highway and into the carpark for Stonehenge. After all of Angie's careful planning neither of us had realized Stonehenge was on our path.

After clearing the traffic for Stonehenge, we ran into a battalion air wing of the helicopter arm of the Royal Air Force putting on an air show for the local populace. It was interesting to drive around a curve in the road to see an entire air wing of attack choppers hovering above the roadway and others in various locations around town. It was, of course, just another Saturday drive for the Goodwin family.
We followed this normal drive with a normal grocery store run. We bought the food needed for our week in a beachside cabin resort. Then we hit the beach!

The beach resort was on a bluff overlooking the ocean to the west. To get to it, though, we had to slide down a 150 feet of sand dune. There was a near constant updraft over these dunes which proved useful to para-sailors all week. It was kind of weird to watch someone in a parachute hanging out just 10 to 15 feet above our heads.
