Stonehenge And Bath

Last weekend we took a day trip to Stonehenge and Bath. Both locations were really quite beautiful and we had a good day.

Stonehenge is a strange place. When we got there it was quite grey and gloomy, but by the time we'd walked half way around the clouds had cleared and we had blue skies. Either way it was astounding to think that humans 5000 years ago managed to move these stones!

I will admit that it was a little smaller that I expected, but it was not less magical. I almost felt the urge to rip of my clothes and perform some sort of heathen dance, but there were just too many people around.

After visiting Stonehenge we went on the the city of Bath, so called for the Original Roman Bath that is now a sort of museum in the town.

The Baths were fascinating. You could still see the gasses bubble up to the surface of the water and a lot of the original architecture is still intact, including the drainage sytem for all excess water. With what remains, you could actually quite easily visualise the men of the time using these pools.

Most of our remaining time in Bath was spent eating lunch and checking out shops. We saw one shop that Adie's mum would love as it was filled to bursting with dolls houses.

It turned out to be a really nice and relaxing day. Plus we got a chance to see a part of England that we've never been to. I'd always wanted to see Stonehenge and now that I have I'll have to find somewhere else to check out.
