Today we made a somewhat fruitless phone call about our baggage, and were told to call China Southern's French office and were given a number. Which rang out.  So, we headed into Hungerford and Marlborough for some shopping. I managed to find a dress and a top so that I had a change of clothes (thankfully last night we'd been able to borrow pyjamas, and I'd left some clothes and toiletries here last time I was here).  I also picked up a variety of cheeses to try from the markets, as they were 3 for a pound - how could I resist.  They even had my favourites - cream brie and cranberry wensleydale...

I was amused by a sign outside the pub in Hungerford, which promoted itself as a "husband crèche", offering supervision of husbands while you shopped, all for the price of a pint.

We headed back home for some lunch, then went to Honeystreet to the Barge Inn to see the crop circles information, and then to Devizes to see the Caen Hill Locks.  At least, that was the intention.  Even with Satnav I managed to get us thoroughly lost and we ended up circling the town for 40 minutes.  However, I eventually managed to find the right thing to enter into the navigation and we made it.

On the way back we stopped in at Avebury to see the stone circles.  Somehow managed to lose each other on the one path to them, as well as fail to find each other at the stones, but eventually made it back to the car successfully, all through driving rain.

In the evening we went to the Bell for Crabbies Ginger Beer and some scratchings.
