Monday 21 March – Hobbiton
Today Kay and I took a trip to nearby Matamata, where the Alexander family farm has been transformed into The Shire, Middle Earth, as the setting for the filming of The Hobbit.
Although we were amazed at the number of tourists, we were delighted by what we saw. Here are a few pictures but I have loads more… just takes too long to upload.
We visited Laurie and June again on the way back and I said my goodbyes to them. We passed the pretty little church in Cambridge.
Then in the evening after Chris returned from work we went out to dinner at the Onyx, which I thought was very much like the Old Post Office in Wallingford.
