We took the opportunity yesterday to make the most of the sunshine and head over to Avebury, the World Heritage Site village. It has a world famous stone circle there and is protected by the National Trust.
It’s a beautiful place and it seemed like everyone else had the same idea as us to visit on Sunday so it was pretty busy. There’s a very nice pub there called The Red Lion so we stopped and had a refreshing drink in the sun there before crossing the road and wandering through the stone circle.
It’s a great place because unlike Stonehenge, you can walk around these rocks and go right up to them. Some people were even climbing them. It’s well taken care of and I’m glad it’s still so accessible to everyone. Next to the stone circle was a beautiful field full of rapeseed so we couldn’t resist a couple of pictures in front of it!
It ended up being a really nice day, relaxing outside enjoying a beverage, with dogs sleeping and soaking up the rays and everyone in a good mood, embracing the change in season and all that comes with it.
Now for the pictures!
On our way home from Avebury, we passed the White Horse and couldn’t help but notice a lot of people paragliding and hang gliding so we just had to stop by to take a look! It was pretty cool watching someone just step off the side of the hill and fly. It looked like a lot of fun but something I’d probably be a little too afraid to try. Heights aren’t exactly my thing…
Have any of you ever tried paragliding or hang gliding? Or would you ever want to try it?
Thanks for reading!
