Winter Solstice 2012 @ Stonehenge

Posted on

After our alarm failed to go off, or at least not wake us up,  we were woken with the arrival of Ben and Luke at 01:00 and after a bit of a rush we were on the bikes by 01:30.Winter solstice is a fantastic time of year and one of only a few when you can properly go to Stonehenge and get up close and personal with the stones. In all the times I have been I am still to experience a clear sunrise, but what with 2012 being a special year maybe this was going to change. The weather was due to be kind to us, but as there had been heavy rain and flooding throughout the country in they days leading up to it we were not holding our breath .
