Three or More ~ Fur and Feathers!

It’s been quite a while since I’ve participated in Three or More Tuesday but these furry and feathered creatures inspired me to join in this week. Tam at the Gypsy’s Corner is the hostess of this weekly event.

We spotted the dogs and the seagulls while we were watching the huge storm waves that pounded our Southern Beaches this past week. These photos were taken in Ventura, California at Surfer’s Point on Saturday.

Have a great Tuesday everyone…

Outdoor Wednesday ~ Castlerigg Stones in Britain

Castlerigg is one of the most beautiful stone circles in Britain, set in a splendid position, in an open field crowned by the Lake District’s mountains, 213m (700ft) above sea level. It is thought to be one of the earliest circles in Britain, and it dates from around 3000 BC.
    Thirty-eight stones are placed in an slightly oval shape of 30m (100ft) in diameter; a further 10 small stones are arranged as a rectangular enclosure on the south-east side of the ring: this is a feature unique to Castlerigg, nothing similar being present in other stone circles. The largest stone of the circle, not far from the enclosure, is 2.5m (8ft 3in) high and it weighs about 16 tons: most of the others, much smaller, are 1 to 1.5m (3-5ft) high. At the north of the ring is an entrance marked by two slightly bigger stones, and about 90m (295ft) to the south-west, by a stile at the edge of the field, is a single outlying stone, 0.9m (3ft) high.

We were in this part of England and at this sight in May of 2006. The Lake District was a beautiful place to walk. I’m really itching to get back to Great Britain now that I’ve learned a few things through blogging about taking photographs :0)
