On Sunday, May 16, 2015, the group and I took a day trip to see Stonehenge and the Roman Baths. This day was full of mystery and creativeness.
Our first stop was Stonehenge. Stonehenge is a rock formation that no one knows how it was made or why it was made. There are a lot of mystery and stories to tell why Stonehenge is made. One story to why Stonehenge was made is to celebrate the mid summer solstice. This celebration is to celebrate the longer days that are to come. Another story is for them to celebrate the mid winter solstice. Some people also think Stonehenge was created for healing purposes, religious purposes, and some even think aliens created it. I personally think that Stonehenge was created by for religious purposes.
The second stop we made was at the Roman Baths. The Roman Baths is a place where water comes up through pores in the ground and is water and enriched with minerals. There have been a lot uses for the Baths. The Romans used to use it to drink and bathe in, and then it was used for religious purposes so no one was able to bathe in it, and then it was used to bathe in again. The baths were cool to see, and we were even able to try the water. I personally did not like the water, it had a funny taste to it and it was obviously warm since it was coming from the Earth’s core.
This day was fun filled and was fun to see these different landmarks. Seeing these sights also allowed me to use my creativity as to why they were created, or what they were used for.
