Stonehenge Spectacular
Stonehenge was amazing. It was a windy day and cloudy but the sun peeked out every so often and gave us some amazing shots. It was great to have our shoes off with toes in the grass and being so near to the stones with so few people around. We mostly took the trip so we could do the inner circle tour but also enjoyed BATH and LACOCK more than we expected to.
