Ladies and Gentlemen.. welcome to Salisbury, home of the tallest cathederal in England, Salisbury Cathederal, (founded 1220) and also that ancient place of pagan worship…Stonehenge. Tonight is the summer solstice and the witches and warlock heathen will be out to pay homage. As well as their new age folk with their power crystals and such. God bless em.
Stonehenge is pretty cool to see. Its set on a plain, and all around it is farmland. In reality, its just a bunch of stones set up in a feild. Granted, there is alot of history to it and mystique, but it wasnt enough to keep me there for more than a quick photo. What I’ve learned is that while famous places are great to see, its the people that make the trip.
That being said, we transitioned from Stonehenge to a poppy field. I think it was my suggestion that the girls (Jess & Rosie) take the opportunity frolic. I mean, a feild of flowers, how can you not frolic? And frolic they did…
Being incapable of frollicing, I lended little needed moral support.
A good time was had by all.
I also got to sail around the southern coast of England for 2 nights, anchoring one night off the Isle of White. Its really amazing that I’ve transitioned from the beaches of South East Asia, to sailing around the southern coast of England. I still havent lost my wonder on this trip. Standing on the bow of the ship looking out onto these white cliffs and ocean, its just incredible. John, the rightful captian of the ship has outfitted the yacht with GPS, radar, several radios, and automatic tiller, and anything else we would need to survive on the open water. Apparently the craft is quite sea-worthy and could be used to sail around the world, escape from a crumling society and/or the wicked authorities of aforementioned society. Brilliant.
