I spent a lovely, relaxed afternoon making Excalibur icons and picspam. Will post those tomorrow.

Ok, folks, here's the rest of my Glastonbury pics. Want to get them up before dinner as my internet time will have run out by the time I get back.

After the Abbey I headed towards the tor but decided to go back to my hotel room first and dump a load of stuff. It was too warm for a coat and I had a load of stuff in my bag that I didn't need and didn't fancy lugging up to the top.

Stopped off at The Chalice Well on the way back as [livejournal.com profile] richandme and [livejournal.com profile] bogwitch had both recommended it. Embarassingly they don't take any form of plastic there and I had the total sum of about £1.50 in cash on me. The lovely lady at the desk let me in for free. I thanked her profusely.

I definitely chose the right time of year to go. My allergies would have been playing hell with me if I'd gone in the summer when all the flowers were in full bloom.

After that it was onwards and upward to the tor

I think if I posted all my photos in one post LJ would explode. LOL! So here we have the photos of my hotel room, the King Arthur pub and Glastonbury Abbey. Hope you like them!

Here I was worried that I wouldn't have time to do everything I wanted in one day. Hee! Done the abbey, chalice well and tor and have had lunch. Timed it all quite well really. It was glorious this morning and now it's clouded over and I expect rain soon.

I'm going to have a bit of a rest now. My feet are killing me. LOL. Might venture out again a bit later depending on what the weather is doing. I've done everything I wanted to do so if it starts raining this afternoon I'm quite happy to just chill out in the hotel :)

There's definitely something special about this place. I don't think I've ever felt this relaxed.

Anyone want to see some of my photos? Or shall I wait until I get home tomorrow?

This place is clearly good for me. Woke up at 8am without any need for the alarm. Breakfast doesn't start getting served until nine so I'm just chilling until then.

A quick glance outside and it looks to be a nice day. The BBC is forecasting showers this afternoon but I'm hoping I'll have done most of the outdoorsy stuff by then.

I had a Being Human dream last night, which was kind of odd

I was in London with Mitchell and he was my best friend. [livejournal.com profile] yavannauk was there too and we were all on a bus heading to France. At one point I realised I didn't have a visa so I got off the bus so I could go to the French Embassy and get one. I told the others I'd catch the next bus and meet them there. Anyway, as soon as I got off the bus I realised I didn't need a visa because I had a European passport but it was too late, the bus had gone. I then realised I'd left my mobile on the bus so I couldn't call anyone to tell them.

Woke up after that.

My hotel has wireless! YAY! I have to pay for it but it's less than £10 for 24 hours so I figured what the hell.

So, I'm in Glastonbury! It's pretty cool, although I've only been for a brief wander. My hotel is right next to the abbey, which was the main point of my trip so yay!

Went to a wondeful organic resaurant for dinner and have been sat down in the hotel bar writing fic. I am feeling very relaxed and happy. I needed this trip

Found a pub called The King Arthur but it appeared to be full of chavs so opted not to have a drink there. Will take a photo before I leave though.

I'm amazed at the number of magic shops this town has. I've never been into a real magic shop before. I do want to go in but feel slightly anxious as I don't want to look like a total tourist (which I am). I'll try and pluck up the courage tomorrow

So, the plan for tomorrow is the abbey first, then the Chalice Well on the way to the tor. I am rather looking forward to it.
