Tour of Heysham, England
Today, my wife and I had time to spare whilst waiting to connect with the ferry from Heysham, N.W. England to the Isle of Man.

We decided to explore the old, central part of Heysham village, a decision which trasnpired to be very wise. We were treated to fascinating old residentail architecture dating as far back at the 16th century, two ancient places of Christian worship dating back to the first millennium. a 10th century 'hogback' grave marker (in excellent condition) an exceptionally colourful and well maintained public garden plus exceptional views over Morecombe Bay. This 2-3 hour unplanned trip may yet prove to be the highlight of our entire vacation.
