Summer solstice today immediately evokes the iconic image of Stonehenge.

Summer solstice.

Thanks for reminding me, time I set off to the henge to worship a pile of old rubble.

A 22 year old granddaughter called in (studying for a Masters at UCL) to say she had been with friends at Stonehenge as usual . Her fathers day card to me mentioned that I was not to be too depressed about Labour getting 262 seats at the election. A Corbynista to the core, in spite of her apparent intelligence!

apparent intelligence!

Apparent being appropriate word. I fail to see sny intelligence in visting Stone Henge other than to see it once and ponder on its construction and its purpose. I have been to see it myself when younger but the worshipping for the solice is beyond my clearly limited intelligence.

"...the worshipping for the solice is beyond my clearly limited intelligence."

It's a harmless enough thing - live and let live.

Our celebration was an evening ride of 18 miles up to Hope Cross in the Peak District and a clear view of the Peaks at 10pm

I suspect it has more to do with Bacchus than the Druids. A load of modern day "Flower Power" folk having what they believe is a good, memorable , time at a historic site. I'd rather have a cup of tea, myself!
