I often stop in the forest to let my dog have a romp around whilst I take a few snaps. Last Thursday I had a little surprise. A large lorry stopped me from parking where I had intended and so I pulled up near to the Cordon des Druids.
The sun was shining through the trees onto the stones and it was just after midday. The stones are in a line which stretches for about 800 feet, the tallest is only about 6 feet high.
But something was different, because the tallest stone was adorned with a garland of flowers, it was the right size for wearing on your head. The stones that I had visited the previous week have been given a macabre image with modern day sculptures of hands with claws and benches wearing devilish heads. The information boards told you about the Druids sacrificing people on the huge flat topped rocks.
The flowers made these stones feel like a happy place to be.
I found a website about a couple who travel around various parts of the world looking at these old stones, there is a lot of information in this link.
