Day 18 – June 25 Tuesday – Leamington, Shrewsbury, Chester

It was cloudy and rainy for them today.  They started at 9:30 and rode through beautiful farm country.  They saw old English, pigs, cows, horses, colts.  They had lunch at The Raven in Shrewsbury.

While walking around Shrewsbury she got caught in the rain, which ruined her hat.  She enjoyed talking with a Mrs. Duncan and Mr. Thomas – very amusing – about food.

In the evening she played bridge and Russian Bank.
