Our Day Out

I just wanted to mention something else. Today, Brit Boy and I went on a day out. Brit Boy had the day off. We went to an interesting place here in Wiltshire called Barbury Castle. We didn't have a sunny day here today. It was quite cloudy, but somehow the cloudiness of the day added to the atmosphere. There is no longer a structure there, but the landscape is stunning. I will be writing about it in the next few days and also I have photos.

Me too, I love these old ruins, will await your photos with interest :-)

I'll look forward to seeing your pictures.

John and I stopped by someplace special to you today when we called in at Stourhead. It was beautiful!

Of course we talked about you and Brit Boy several times while we were there.

We were on our way back from Gatwick today after having just arrived from America.

I was too tired to see everything so me decided to go back.

Alison,
Thanks for stopping by and commenting. It was a good day out...very calming. Will definitely post some photos and tell all about it.

Charmainezoe,
Sadly, there are no ruins left now, but there are a series of mounds with ditches around them and they apparently found artifacts there. It's a great place to enjoy nature. Loved it. :)

Elizabeth,
That is so cool that you visited Stourhead. It is one of my very favorite places here. Just beautiful. The house and the grounds are lovely. :)

I'm a big fan of grey, cloudy days. I can't wait to see the pictures!

Mountain Woman,
Yeah, the cloudiness of the day made for a windswept landscape. It was a fun nature trip out.

Zyriana,
Thanks for stopping by. We walked a long way along the fields there and the views were great.

Dori :-)
