2010; The Year O Many Stanes!

Actually, it starts in October 2009 when, on a glorious Thursday I decided I wanted to go to Kilpeck Church and visit the Sheela Na Gig; a carving from around 1130 of a haggard woman holding open her vagina (odd for a church, but there you go). While in that area, I figured we could see what else was nearby and that is how I happened upon the Google Earth-TMA application! Well, theres no turning back now is there :)

We opted for Arthurs Stone and Four Stones, both beautiful and easy to get to from Kilpeck while its still light. Beautiful. Arthurs Stone is much bigger than I expected and has a beautiful spot even if you can practically park your car on it! The sun came out long enough for me to feel its warmth before leaping back in the car a driving like a mad woman through the country lanes to get to Four Stones (easily found once I stopped mistaking cows for stones...)

Ah, I have the taste for it now; just lacking finances...
