Stonehenge and Winchester

Sunday July 19th- Today we visited both Stonehenge and Winchester. To say that it was an awe inspiring trip would be an understatement! Stonehenge is so beautiful, so huge, and so mystical I don’t know how I could even begin to describe it. Everything from the position of the rocks, the design they create and the speculation around what the site was used for is amazing and unbelievable.

After Stonehenge we took a short ride over to Winchester which has a beautiful Cathedral and is also the place where Jane Austen lived her last days. She is buried in the Cathedral. As an English major, librarian, and overall lover of literature this was a special trip for me, Jane Austen holds a special place in the history of literature, and has always been a favorite of mine. We stood by her grave, read the dedication, a then walked around the corner to see the house she lived in. Overall, another fantastic day.
