Dartmoor

I am having a sensational time here in West Devon, staying in a lovely little village called Exbourne. We have spent a day back down in Cornwall at Boscastle and Tintagel which was wonderful. http://www.cornwall-online.co.uk/english-heritage/tintagel.htm

Today we have walked the Moors - stunning place and found an ancient Bronze Age Village with Stone Rows and Circles and Huts and Standing Stones and oh wow its so beautiful and amazing....to think of people living here over 3000 years ago! I have taken some photos but on a normal camera so they won't be up for a while - but you can look here http://www.megalithic.co.uk/article.php?sid=117

I feel truly honoured to be treated so kindly by the lovely people who have opened their homes to me, and shared their sacred places. The moon and stars look lovely from here tonight - even if they are round the wrong way and upside down hahahaaha

So many thanks to you who have emailed me and txt-ed me - its really nice to get a little voice from home and from friends and family. I can't always reply as my time near a computer is limited but I do so appreciate them and read every word. From here Im going somewhere, not sure yet but will work all that out tomorrow and then on the 25th its off to Druid Camp for me! Im so excited about it and also spending my first ever Northern Hemisphere Birthday on the 3rd of August, in the middle of a bunch of Druids - that will be a riot no doubt!

The weather down here has been stunning- I rekon about 24-26 degrees each day but you can hang out all day in the sun and not burn! I am loving it.

I spent a week down in Kernow or Cornwall a couple of weeks ago too and that was amazing!

Unikorn's Big Crystal Factory Adventure!

Hi again folks! Well, I'm back in not-so-sunny North Devon again, enjoying just adventuring around the local area.

Jumped on a bus the other day and managed to find myself to Dartington Crystal... http://www.dartington.co.uk/index.html

You can walk all around the factory, high up on a walkway and watch the whole process as they heat, turn, blow, turn, cool, work the glass into these fine pieces of art! Fantastic day out!

Well, we have been battered by storms the last couple of day which is limiting my adventuring slightly - don't really enjoy getting drenched through to the skin...reminds me of home tho :) Well, thats it from the home of Devonshire Teas *waves*
