We had a little road trip down to Devon, where I have never been before. I have seen a lot of North England in the past 3 years when I have lived here, but haven’t visited south of England expect London. Visited Avebury in Wiltshire, which is a neolithic henge monument containing three stone circles. It is the largest stone circle in europe. It was really impressive with BIG stones circling the little village. It is fascinating to think of how little we know of people who created the circle and why they did it.

The next day we went to see the Stonehenge. Driving in and seeing it from distance was the most amazing moment for me – it is that impressive! We were there luckily right in the morning when the site opens up, nowadays you need to pay to “get in”, although you can only circle around the circle as you are not allowed to go and hug the stones. Luckily in the morning because then we didn’t have to queue in and had a peaceful walk around it. A bit later the place was full of people already. Me and my husband have visited many stone circles in UK and in France, and this must be the most impressive. Very happy to have seen it now.

After the archeological attractions we went to Devon and visited friends, and walked with the dog on the beeches of Devon. Muumi- dog caught (found really) a huge eal I think it must be? She didn’t know if she should try eating it or leave it. After a sunny day walking on the cliffs and sea side I burned my face and chest – it was the first real summers day for me and didn’t predict the heat of the day.  Now trying to heal my sun burn with coconut oil – does help!

And lastly, had the best ever Cream Tea in Devon – just look at the picture of the scones with strawberry jam and clotted cream! Superb.


ps the picture with a beautiful beach surrounded by sea cliffs – had my first swim there this year (naked) 😉 No pictures of that though!
