A Canterbury Tale

Isabel and I visited Canterbury, of the Chaucer Tales fame, on Sunday. And along with the Cathedral and the Norman ruins we also visited the graveyard and a second hand bookshop. I have a mildly morbid love for places like graveyards, because they have so many potential stories. One of the reasons I was so taken with the idea of moving to England is because it has such a romantic history. Australia's post colonial history is interesting and all, and it is a pity I have such an incomplete knowledge of the Aboriginal history, but England is the stuff novels are made of.
