Got to Salisbury in time to ditch our bags at "left luggage" and make the bus to Stonehenge. It was a misty surreal sight, but no ancient mystical vibes for me. Back on the bus to Salisbury. In Salisbury we visited the gorgeous gothic cathedral and wandered around the quaint little town and fell in love with it. We spent too much time wandering and had to pass up the Roman Baths at Bath, oh well, next time.

We nearly missed our connection again but with swift mind and feet they let us board the train. The conductor was a cross between a member of the Gestapo and a grandmother. Faye and I took turns riding backwards. We were so tired we didn't care, as we hadn't slept much the night before.

Stonehenge sits on the Salisbury Plain 10 miles north of the village of Salisbury and mystifies those who see it. How did it get there - no one really knows. Most believe it was used by the Druids for their cultic rituals. There are other circles of stones in other parts of the world and one is north of Stonehenge at Amesbury. Still more of these type stones can be seen in the western part of France in Brittany.
