England on my Mind

Millenium BridgeGeorge Alexander Louis.  What do you think?  With all this buzz about England, I can’t help but think back to my week I spent in London in 2011.  England was always at the top of my list to visit, but London didn’t meet all of my expectations.  I think I need to return and spend more time to get a better feel for the country.  Have you ever visited a place and found it wasn’t everything you thought it was?


Stonehenge1In honor of the birth of the Prince of Cambridge, I thought I’d share some of my favorite photos of England.  Then I realized I don’t have all of my England photos on this computer, so we will have to wait till tomorrow for that one.  Until then, let’s take a look at Stonehenge.

If mysteries are your thing, then this might be your kind of place.  Questions surround the stones in the field.  How did they get here?  Why are they positioned this way?  What does it all mean? The answers vary depending on who you ask.  Personally I’d like to believe that it was built by astronomers and not for sacrificial purposes.

Stonehenge is probably the most famous of stone circles, but it is not the only.  There are actually hundreds of them in Britain alone.  Have you ever visited an ancient stone circle?  What were your thoughts on it?
