Off The Beaten Track

As we are hosting the Olympic Games this year
there have  been a number of Cultural Olympiad Events 
occurring up and down the country.

For us, the big one is was the Fire Garden at one of our most
important heritage sights, Stonehenge.

We were greeted by the sight of huge spheres lit up, massive fire candles 
and chaps manipulating fire, all amongst the massive stones which are normally 
roped off and can only be viewed from a distance.  
The atmosphere was amazing!

 One of the many fire candles, each one had a different
design on it along with writing in 
different languages.

 Fire balls, these could be clearly seen from the road
and were an impressive sight for those driving past!

The automatons made amazing shadows on the stones.

Below, some of the lanterns that were hanging amongst the stones.
These had all been made out of t-shirts!!

This had to be one of the best ways to spend a cold damp English Summer Evening,
with all that fire around we we're never going to be cold!!!
