Day 9.166: Good friends

Later in the day, we did a pretty good job of putting it out of our minds as we got together with our good friends B, C & D.

Today, we were on their home turf in Abingdon where we enjoyed some outdoor dining (very European of us) and briefly visited the free museum (Abingdon County Hall Museum) - the three right and lower photos are of the inside and outside of the museum. We were sitting just across the square.
