Love at first sight
Love at first sight. Not something I used to believe in, but you know that feeling you get when everything just clicks? A slight rush, like a natural high, but at the same time a deep feeling of calm. The knowledge that it is just right. I've definately fallen.
Yesterday I went to visit the Rollwright Stones in oxfordshire, and I fell for them as soon as I stepped through the gate. (What? You thought I was talking about a person? ;) 'Fraid I don't fall quite that easily) The Rollrights definately have an aura about them, a feeling of power which you certainly don't get at stonehenge. Of course this may have been amplified by the fact that I had the entire place to myself for the majority of the time I was there, something which doesn't happen very often at most historic sites.
All in all, I had a really great afternoon yesterday. Bombing around the english countryside, windows down, music up, glorious sunshine. After dropping some visiting friends back to oxford, I went first to Minster Lovell Hall and then to the Rollright stones, took many many photos (note to self: buy a bigger memory card) and had some very relaxing me time.
To top the day off, while I was driving home, I had a gorgeous sunset on my left, a virtually full moon on my right, and a quite spectacular rainbow spanning across the countryside.
