The back of beyond.

We've been travelling past my favorite set of stones this week. A slightly closer view than I normally show on here. To get closer you have to pay and walk under a road tunnel that will take you under the wire fence, no trying to duck under it either..

Loads of sheep around as usual.
At eleven in the morning parked along a farm track near the Henge it was cold and windy.
A happy 11 deg Cel.

It never looks inviting enough this time of year to get out from a warm car.

There are some that have to be coaxed.

There are some that take the plunge, no matter what time of day or night you pass, no matter what weather, it always seems as if someone is walking around.

We went to see Jake..

Mr Chops,.

 Tilly May,

and Kiann.
We also made the most of our visit and called into Ferry cottage.

Freya can be decidedly pushy at times. .

It's seems a long way back home at this time of year.
Even longer when half way along the road you have to stop.....

You might not be able to see the stones in the photo, but take my word they are there.
No matter what time of night it is, there is always someone walking around !
The wind had dropped it was a balmy 15 deg C. The best time to visit Stonehenge might be at night after all.

You can find Freya Rose Blossom as usual over at CATFLAP CAVALIER
Where ever your heading this weekend, have a great time.

The kids and the dogs are all too cute. Seeing a fence around Stonehenge seems strange, but I guess it's necessary.

Freya seems to be getting cuter - just like the smaller humans. We are off on a road trip tomorrow. Maybe even a quilt show...

Looks just as cool and grey at Stonehenge as it is here - only rain has started.
At least Ferry cottage was an oasis of warmth and cosiness!
Enjoy the weekend!
PS Thanks for posting the giveaway!

It is shame when you have to pay for something that is part of your heritage. It has been raining a lot this week, but nice days coming soon.

Wonderful photos, Midge.. I will take your word about the stones.. They do look awesome..
And those grandkids are darling..
Your puppy is fitting right in, eh?

I have only been to Stonehenge once and I couldn't touch a stone. Ian has been there umpteen times before they stopped you getting close and has touched them. Am I jealous? YES.
See Freya is enjoying heself.

The kids are growing up too fast. Glad you had a safe trip!

I have been to Stonehenge too and was very disappointed with all the fences and that you cant just wander around its all paths and fencing.. And everyone looks like lemmings walking around with the handheld devices that tell you about the stones.. I understand the stones have to be protected and a very rare lichen grows on them, so no touching.. Also Mr Chops looks very gorgeous..:O)

Hi - we are new followers!! We look forward to being friends so please stop on by and say Hi!!!

Awww there is nothing cuter than kids and dogs :)

Yes it is definitely Autumn! Had hail and sheet rain here. Yes it is a shame that Stonehenge has been taken over and turned into a money making machine.

Looks like Freya enjoys meeting and greeting.
