The Longstone is my favorite place on the Isle of Wight. Strangely peaceful valley at the top of a hill. Once when we were there there was a plague of Ladybirds. 5 different types I counted and they covered, and I do mean COVERED the stone like little jewels. Got in our hair and our clothes too. Impossible to photograph it proved. It was very fairytale like.

This house has no electricity apparently. You can hire it out for the weekend and live in an old fashioned style. Always appeals to me.

      I always enjoy going along on someone else's outing, thanks! I would love to see what you are wearing, the shadow in #5 is perfect with the photo. It could be from a time long ago... very nice!
