La Hougue de Vinde is a cist-in-circle, a type of monument peculiar to the Channel Islands.

We liked this place - and it seemed to like us. It's been robbed - the cist has long since gone; damaged, overgrown and neglected; not easy to find in the trees. Branches overhang and encroach into the inner space. A saw is needed here. There's a geocache. Yet, despite all the setbacks, we were pleased to be there in its stillness to share its existence.

We kissed in a circle.
