Stonehenge

In ancient times…
Hundreds of years before the dawn of history
Lived a strange race of people… the Druids

No one knows who they were or what they were doing
But their legacy remains
Hewn into the living rock… Of Stonehenge

-Spinal Tap

We traveled to Stonehenge the other day and, I must say, I was a bit surprised to just drive up on a highway and, there it is, right next to the road.  Perhaps it would be more mysterious if it weren’t ringed by about 500 gawking tourists being slowly herded around a rope line.  I guess I’ve got no room to judge as we were about to add 4 to that number.

Anyway, it was pretty cool once you got up next to it and started thinking about how these people might have pulled this thing off.  Pretty amazing, really.

So, we made our ring around the ancient structure, nodded reverently, and then started to make our way towards Windsor Castle.

Trivia – Blue (Sharon’s childhood friend with whom we’re staying in Brighton) who is a video director for concerts and music DVD productions and has travelled the world with many, many bands did a show once with “Spinal Tap.”  See what else he’s done here.
