We had our first visit to Stonehenge on Saturday. I say first because i'd love to go back sometime, early morning or at dusk. Too many other folks there, it felt quite touristy which of course it is.
It's a lot smaller than you expect, though not being able to actually walk through it as one used to probably takes away from it's awe. I'd love to have been able to touch rocks that are 5000 years old. (Ok, the rocks existed a lot longer than 5000 years ago, but even still...) The rocks came from Wales, before there was 4WD so no wonder it took 1000 years to build...

Last week Bethie and I took a tour through the Tower Of London. It's one of the oldest buildings in London and was the site of a few dozen executions. The Beefeaters and other staff actually live in quarters on site, a stone's throw from where Royalty once lived themselves.
