I was thinking about our visit to Stonehenge. I was not enthusiastic at first, afraid it would be too tourist ridden. To my continued amazement it was wonderful ! The Salisbury plains are vast even though the traffic flows past. The day was windy and cloudy. I was untroubled by the people and enjoyed the ancient stones and the history we listened to in our little ear bugs. They have done an amazing job saving the sight for what hopes to be many generations. It had a mystical air about it ,even with the tourists and care takers[seeding the lawns]. I don't want to go into the history here but hope anyone who might read this will read more and be as fascinated as David and I . Things are continuing to be discovered about this wonderful place. I came away with such feelings of gratefulness and appreciation for those who take on the job of protecting these historical sights and truly honor those who take on the task.
We joined the National Trust . I so wish we worked as hard in our cities ,saving our simple buildings and houses. I guess you can tell I ,am so glad to have seen Stonehenge. To have not been too jaded to seek out this magical mystical place.
