|I had to take a picture of this smiling Italian; He even sucked his gut in for the picture! Too funny!|
Our next Glen adventure took us to Groudle Glen. It's history goes back to 1890 when an enterprising businessman purchased the lease for the whole Glen, built a hotel and promised 'romantic walks' and attractions. It boasted sea lions and (sad to say) chained bear cubs for the amusement of the guests. The highlights of the Glen are a water wheel and huge viaduct. You can still hear it moaning and groaning as the wheel moves scooping up the water!

Stay tuned for more racing and the 'church cakes'.
