Bank Holiday Outing

For the bank holiday we decided to take advantage of our central location and drive down south to Stonehenge.  While I was quite excited to see the world famous monument in person, when you initially come upon it, it doesn't seem quite as big as it does in images.  Tourists are also kept at a distance, so up close examination of the stones is just not possible.  Nonetheless, it was great to see them in person and ponder their existence and just how 5000 years ago people could move and cut stone prior to the invention of the wheel!

Lichen grow on the stones, there are at least 77 different types of lichen growing on them
