This is another one of those posts where I'm going to invite you to travel back in time with me.  We're going back to April again if you don't mind for another catch up post from the time we spend with James' parent when they came to visit.

On the Sunday they were here we decided to take a nice drive out for a lovely Sunday roast lunch.  I forgot to take a picture of the yummy food we ate but here is the pretty pub that we went to in the village of Avebury.
Avebury I've posted about many times before.  As you know I'm sure it's famous for its ancient stone circle.  So after we'd eaten we went for a stroll ...... the stones are very impressive so of course the cameras came out straight away.
It was pretty chilly the day we went so there weren't the usual crowds of people that you often find which was nice for us.
We were able to stroll among the stones in relative peace.
One of the many things I love about Avebury compared to Stonehenge is how close you can get to the stones themselves.
It's such a large site too, with many different angles and positions to view the landscape from.
We also had a quick visit to nearby Silbury Hill.
There are so many interesting ancient monuments to explore in Wiltshire, it's a lovely place to live.  I would have liked us to have been able to visit the West Kennet Long Barrow too, but James' Mum had a fall last year and managed to break her hip still in recovery when they visited wasn't able to walk too far.  Still that leaves us something to look forward to for next time :)
