Stonehenge

I haven't had much time to blog this week, we've been on the go quite a bit. And even now I fear I'm too tired to write very much.

We were up early and went to Stonehenge at 6:15 this morning. We saw the end of a dawn Druid ceremony and got to walk amongst the giant stones ourselves. At the end of our timeslot, I took one last stroll around the outside of the circle. As I walked around, I realized everyone else had started back toward the parking lot, so I stepped back in the circle, closed my eyes and stood there. Entirely alone in the middle of Stonehenge. It was so incredible, magical, mystical I can hardly believe it happened.

We have also been to Winchester Cathedral, which houses the incredible Winchester Bible. A very old illuminated bible, with the colours for the illustrations made of lapis lazuli and such.

Also the Roman Baths - two hours was not enough time! The audio tour is very worthwhile.

I promise I'll try to write more in a couple days when we have some "down" time...right now I have to go to sleep!!

Cheerio!

Soo good to hear from you. Thanks for the update. Sorry to hear you're exhausted, but worth it, eh?! It all sounds amazing.

Lynn:

Oh, the wonder of Stonehenge! I've always wanted to go. I'm green, yet again. This seems to be an all-too-common-state for me, while you are away on your marvellous trip.

Give the girls my love. I can't wait to see you all.

Love,

Lynn
