At the ancient White Horse, plus video
When I think about it, it’s pretty silly that we haven’t taken the time to walk up here in a few years.
It’s actually only about 20 miles away from home, and now that we’re here I wonder what took us so long to come back.
I know there are other monuments and even other horses in different parts of the UK but, to me, this prehistoric White Horse here at Uffington is truly a magical place.
Actually, the whole chalk hill is a magical place. There isn’t anywhere in all of Oxfordshire that you can be so high overlooking the whole of the county and miles beyond.
We sat there in the tall grass just above the head of the giant horse. We watched the wind bend the grasses, we watched the people, the flying kites. Robbie decided that we should drive here, hike up, sit on the grass and be in the moment for at least a half hour. Every day.
Here’s a short little video for you. Hope you like it and if you do, plese give it a thumbs-up.
