17 November 2017

Neil and Janette kindly lent us their Heritage cards and we went to Stonehenge, again. This time we arrived at the new exhibition centre and car park, caught a noisy diesel bus (need electric ones) to the henge and had an incredibly good time. Chilly but not crowded. We came back, had a coffee and saw the exhibition. Then a spectacular sunset which we wished we'd stayed at Stonehenge for. C'est la guarde. Then on to London.
