Stratford-Upon-Avon: Shakespeare’s Birthplace at ‘Somerset’ Bob’s Place
You must visit Somerset Bob because he has done the Google Earth Challenge on behalf of W Shakespeare. He and his wife dropped by Stratford so he got great photos of Shakespeare's house, canal boats and baby swans. Be sure to click the photo of the baby swans and look at them because they are a riot.
Somerset Bob has also posted a .kml file that you can download. When you open this file, it will unzip. Click on the unzipped file and it will open your copy of Google Earth and take you directly to Stratford.
I am going to learn how to do that file thing. And I'm going to find a place to host the file for downloads. I want to find historic places that are known world-wide and are here in New England, of the stature of Shakespeare's birthplace. And finally, I am going to create an OPML blogroll that can be easily downloaded to your RSS reader (like my long blogroll on the right sidebar). Then all of the participants can easily be reached from one spot.
Thank you again, Bob.
Be sure to visit the other people who have participated in this challenge!
