Throwback Thursday: Hadrian's Wall

I have a travel bug at the moment so I thought I'd go through and post some old pictures from when I took a trip to Europe. I was going to post some pictures from France, but then I came across pictures from Hadrian's Wall in northern England so I thought I'd share those with you first. The wall was built by Romans as a defense against the tribes in the North. There are still some Roman fort ruins in the area. We went to a ruin called Vindolanda (but I don't have any pictures of it for you today.)

We went up to the wall near sunset and walked around.

Who doesn't love sheep and baby animals?

The picture of this tree is one of my favorite photos from the trip. If I remember correctly, this scene and tree are used in one of the Robin Hood movies.

The area was really gorgeous. I hope I can go back one day. I loved visiting England and Scotland. I'll tell you more about my trip one of these days.

Have you been to see Hadrian's Wall?
