On Friday (already the last day of our stay) we went to Glastonbury where we visited the ruins of the Abbey where Arthur and his wife are supposed to be buried.
Then during the visit, we saw a very strange woman (a guide / actress) who told us what a monk’s life was like in the Middle Ages.
It was very funny.
We laughed a lot when Jean-Baptiste was on stage with her.
There is also an extraordinary tree there, called The Glastonbury Holy Thorn . It comes from Joseph Arimathie’s cane (Joseph was Jesus-Christ’s uncle).
Each time the tree is going to die, they plant a new branch of it and it grows again.

As it was raining (for a change)we had our packed lunches under a shelter.
It was not very warm !
In the afternoon we went shopping in Wells but we had a document to fill in, with lots of questions about the city, as if shopping was not hard enough !! We bought the last souvenirs for our families.
