The plan was for T and I to go together. When I called him at 7.30am it was just too early for him to get up on a weekend, so I drove down by myself.
I love solo expeditions. I wandered about, listened to the audio guide, made little noises at the sheep, snuffled the lovely summer air, enjoyed the hot sunshine at 9.30am, gazed at the patterns the stones make against each other as I moved my head.
I even bought a commemorative mug and enjoyed my coffee once I'd driven back home again. Everyone was still asleep when I got back!
