Bank Holiday Monday, so it was pouring with rain.

We have visitors staying at the hotel who arrived over the weekend from China, and wanted to see Stonehenge today. It's when you get a request like that that you realise just how impractical this is - especially on a bank holiday - by public transport. So I ran them over to Stonehenge, which I've seen before - so the best picture I can give you is the car park.


Then onto Salisbury, with their picture taken to prove their presence here. Very odd to find those cafes that were open were bursting to overflowing, and yet many places - and the Tourist Information Centre - were closed. You would have thought that Salisbury would have learned the balance over the years, but it was good to see it busy in stark contrast to Melksham earlier in the morning, where the TIC was also closed.


Westbury White HorseEven the wet weather hadn't dampend the beauty of Wiltshire - the newly-cleaned Westbury White Horse on our way home. And what a joy to be showing guests around to whom the country was so new - to whom our verant greenness was an excitement, and who delighted in the grass and tree, horses and cows, ducks and swans in Salisbury and the glorious old buildings> They tell me it's very different to Guangzhou
