After INRC 2016 in Bath, UK,  Jean and I flew west from Bristol UK  to Dublin, Ireland.   To find some pictures (and my notes) about this visit to the Irish capital city,  click the following link:


A Visit to Stonehenge

July 8 to July 14, 2016,  Jean and I traveled to Bath, England for her participation in the International Narcotics Research Conference.  The British INRC organizers set things up so that the afternoon of July 13 was available for participants  to spend at the Stonehenge English Heritage site an hour’s tour bus trip each way from Bath.

Click on this link for several images we captured during our 2016 visit to Bath, UK and Jean’s attendance at the 2016 International Narcotics Research Conference in that city.   Of course, during our stay, Jean and I did a lot of walking around the city of Bath and this short aricle contains several images from the 100 or more we captured.  I wrote captions for all the images I selected to set them in context… but no extensive text about the trip.  Click the link to look at the current version of my selections.
