    My wife and I expected to hear some poetry that was new to us and we certainly did and it was really well related to the locations we visited. We were pleasantly surprised to get a history lesson as well! Ken was very informative and the hour and a half walk was at an easy walking pace and we were shown places we would never had found ourselves. I would recommend the walk to anyone with the slightest interest I poetry.
