Standing Stones


I first came here six months ago but with sciatica (bad back) I couldn't make the long walk. But now iv'e come prepared map and compass (essential) and mountain bikes.
Firstly the ride there was really good, above the lake with the trees the mountains and Red Kites aswell very pleasant.When I got to where I thought the stones were the trees thinned enough to walk about and take a look, success ,spectacular success I couldn't beleive I found it so easily (I really think Iv'e got the stonefinding knack, with this gift who needs maps).
The first stone is not high but fat and heavy and leaning slightly, The trees here are so tightly packed that the only way to go through was to follow the clearing, thankfully this is where the other two stones are, but I nearly walked past them untill my daughter spotted them(which I strangely predicted to myself before we left).These two stones reminded me of the Maen Mawr and its two little followers, the little one here is almost unnoticable next to the biggun which is a very nice stone with a kind of face in it.
I tried to retell the folklore about the physicians to my children about how maybe the stones were doctors turned to stone at which point my youngest touched the big one pulled a strained face and said "yes I can feel the doctor in there", Oh to be young again
