Set in Stonehenge

Haven't made it out to Stonehenge yet, but as the old Prodigal Wife is always on the trail of Merlin and all things Druid, I'm sure we will someday! In the meantime, Mary Ellen at mefoley sent us this great shot of this mysterious monument, which has apparently stood in place for millennia (must talk to our fixit man about that!).
Mary Ellen says that she likes this photo because "the clouds were outstanding that day," but in my opinion, the best thing about this photo is—no tourists like us! She must have friends in high places.
If you have a great photo of England, share! Email us and we’ll link back to you if we post it. (72 dpi please!)

Love the picture. Worth the visit. Of course I just saw the henge from our car traveling down the motorway from Winchester to Canterbury. It's just right there in plain sight on the Salisbury Plain. Great Blog. I loved your interview with British Expats Directory. I left a comment, the only one and it was great. Glad to hear Americans can be friendly and welcoming.

My hub and daughter were able to go for Summer Solstice 2 years ago...up close and personal with the stones. She never forgets where the grass and dirt stains on her shoes are from. :)
