So today we’ve walked from Warminster to Larkhill via Stonehenge. The beginning of the day was really enjoyable for me because my old Company Sergeant Major, who’s still in the army, came to visit and we haven’t seen each other for a few years. We actually got blown up together, I don’t know if that’s a thing to celebrate or not, but we certainly have a history there and so it was good to see him.
It was a nice reception and send off from Warminster, and from there we proceeded to walk across Salisbury Plain which is an area that I know very, very well and it brought back some memories…I won’t say fond, but some memories of my time in the military. The Salisbury plain road is long and sometimes tedious road, as you can see in the distance where you’re going as you walk along it, however there was a delight at the end – Stonehenge and an invitation to actually go within the barrier around Stonehenge for photographs and it was just lovely and peaceful, a great way to almost finish off the day, as we then had to walk an extra mile to Larkhill.
