‘ello lords and ladies of Cycle 365. I’m bloody well privileged to present the fourth installment of the Diversity Tour of MY Town. This one is dedicated to DJG — from whom I’ve learned almost everything I know about England.
Obviously, there is no way MY Town’s British enclave could be as great as Great Britain. That’s why our little English settlement is called “Good Britain.” It just doesn’t have the ancient history, significant architecture and sophisticated culture to be called “GREAT.”
Still, for what it’s worth, I’m going to lead you on a photographic tour of Good Britain. I’m sure you will see many parallels to Great Britain.
Like GREAT Britain, Good Britain isn’t all quaintness and/or grand spectacle. No, Good Britain has its own abandoned factories from the Industrial Revolution era.
I was glad to escape that industrial eyesore and get back to some of the top tourist sites. Many tourists come to both Great Britain and Good Britain for the social houses and taverns. In better, non-Covid times, these gathering places would be filled with people tipping a pint of Bass Ale.
Ah, it’s nearly 2:00. In Good Britain, that means it’s almost time for a cup of tea.
Before leaving Good Britain, I thought it would be a good idea to bring you to a very important historic site. It was only a short distance to the grounds of the famous Battle of Hastings.
It might not be the Battle of Hastings you learned about in history class though. This was the Hastings, MN version of the Battle of Hastings.
