Stonehenge - May 10th   

I was in the UK for just a little over 24 hours, rested and ready to go to Stonehenge. Everyone was disappointed about the weather but me. It was overcast, cold and rainy, and I loved it. Oh it was such wonderful weather for this Water Witch, and the perfect way to kick this vacation off. We arrived just a few minutes early and were able to get into the gift shop before it closed. We chose to have the 6:45 time slot which was just shortly after the park closed it regular business hours. The gift shop was normal just like every other gift shop, nothing spectacular except the jewelry made from the Preseli Blue Stone. OF COURSE I bought a piece. There were many beautiful pieces laid in silver, but I chose the beaded bracelet, one because it was affordable, and 2 because my mind started to wonder all these beautiful things I could do with the beads after the bracelet breaks. (It was not bad craftsmanship, but I always break bracelets made like this, it is inevitable) 

When it was finally time to go in I could hardly wait. Instructions were given to NOT touch the stones, for various reasons. SHH don’t tell I couldn’t resist, I did. I had to, how could I not? 


The circle its self was AMAZING, but there was something about the Heal stone  that really fascinated me. It was a large stone all alone outside the circle. No one was interested in it, but I WAS! I was drawn to it, I don’t know if it was the shape of the stone, or just the energy radiating off of it, but IMO it was the strongest of the stones. It was feminine, soft and beautiful. It is as if it was alive motionless but full of power.  

 The Alter stone was hard to see as one of the larger stones had fallen on top of it.

This is a picture of the lichen that had grown on the stones. I was fascinated by it shape. I know what I think it looks like, what do you think? Leave me a comment

 Though I couldn’t take any dirt or small stones without being caught, I did pick this flower growing in the center of the circle. I pressed it and it has preserved wonderfully.
Here I am by the stones!
