Stonehenge

Another bucket list item ticked off

And wasn't the weather perfect! Yes, it was still cold however the pictures are wonderful almost like a wallpaper from a computer or something. I can't take all the credit, they are very photogenic rocks and they've had a lot of practice modeling. The tour arrived here after an hours drive from Windsor Castle. It is located on the Salisbury Plain which is a very flat area of England which has a lot of agriculture due to the lack of forest  -- I'm sure this convinced the ancient Britain's the land was "special" since it is now an area of great archaeological importance.


In the distance of this photo you can see the burial mounds which is where they ancient Britons buried their deceased.



The Heel Stone / Friar Stone, the origin of the name is a bit of a mystery. Some say it is a corruption of Freyja after the Norse goddess.



And is is in the middle of no where. The country side was so pretty and I really enjoyed getting out of the hustle of London. I'll update again soon with Lacock and Bath.
