Well we travelled to Stonehenge on Friday for the Solstice, after arriving at our cabin that we had booked for the weekend we had a quick rest which involved me washing my hair and us all downing a cuppa. We wanted to be at the stones for sundown which was at around 9.20pm. We parked at the disabled car park so my mum could get a lift up we decided to walk there…oops!
It was the furthest car park away on account of the bus transfers, it was about a mile and a bit away luckily we left enough time to get there. It took roughly 20-25 minutes to walk to the stones, it was worth the walk though. Once there we found my mum who had claimed a spot fairly close to the stones.
The atmosphere was alive, my daughter and hubby went to the stones first I shortly followed after sorting the bags. It was packed but everyone was in good spirits, feeling the stones and dancing to the drums. My mum and I took the obligatory selfie 🙂
Then my daughter in between watching the drummers decided it was selfie time
And of course with me
And again.. little miss crazy eyes.
After this the sun started setting, which looked lovely
So then it really started filling up, I took some pics of my daughter at tge stones
Thats her sulky teen look lol.
We stayed with the crowd till about 1.30 then got the bus back to the car for a couple of hours to warm up. We went back up just before dawn, so many ppl were there, they reckon 37000 ppl turned up.
I didn’t get many good pics of dawn sadly on my phone, I will hunt out some from the other cameras though. We left just before the sun rose fully it was too busy and too many drunk/drugged ppl for it to be safe for my mum or daughter. My mum was using a stick unsteady on her feet.
So we got some sleep at the cabin and had a laxy afternoon.
This was my view
I can honestly say I could have stayed listening to those ducks forever. I just felt the stress ease away.
Just before we came home we did the official look at stonehenge.
There was a druid ceremony taking place.
And then there were more selfies lol
And some pics at the huts they have made there
Gotta add these
It was a brilliant weekend and if I get my way I will be going back for winter solstice.
Walking around the day we left in the relative peace and quiet you teally can feel the aura of the place or spirit…well I can anyway, a truely beautiful place. Now I gotta go through all my other pics. 🙂
Hope you enjoyed.
