On friday we trekked ourselves out to stonehenge, despite the 15P price on the tour bus that you had to take there. I'm not usually one for a) tour busses or b) exorbitant fees, but somehow I found myself right there with everyone else. This could have had something to do with the fact that everyone was going, and we're all friends. I enjoy their company but I'm sure you guys all know what friendship is about already.
there were huge, delicious looking blackberries here outside the train, but then we began moving..Salisbury!We began in Salisbury which is another cute little english town I could totally live in.
Did you know!! After WWII the Luftwaffe told the British that they were under strict instructions during the war not to bomb Salisbury Cathedral because they used it as a landmark when flying so they could bomb other important places? What a lucky save! It's beautiful inside.
This is the baptismal font, such as I've never seen. The following picture is the reflection directly on the surface of the stained glass at the far end of the cathedral.
maybe I should live in a church....
I wasn't supposed to take this. It's from the room where the Magna Carta was. I always manage to take illegal photographs though...

I'm pretty sure I have a photograph of this from every angle!

Over all what did I think? Well.....I expected Stonehenge to be a lot more remote, as in up in the moors with nothing around. Certainly not a car-park, but what did I expect, how would people get there? It's probably that book I read about the lovers at Stonehenge. and yes, I am mortified embarrassed for having read it : )
