The Merry Maidens

Stone Circle


Whilst touring the UK before the existance of TMA, using various maps and books, my wife and I were in Cornwall looking at all things ancient/old. I knew of the Merry maidens and hoped to see them. We stopped the car to take a photo of a very old Celtic/Christian cross. As I was taking the photo, i had this feeling, like when you know someone is looking at you and you look up and they are. Anyway I slowly looked up and right in front of me was the Merry Maidens. I swear i had not see them at all before that, even though I was right next to them. It was a fantastic feeling. It was like they were saying "Hey. over here. don't get back in the car. This is what you've come to see"
The merry Maidens are BEAUTIFUL and remain a sentimental favourite because they found me before I went looking for them.
