“A day spent without the sight and sound of beauty, the contemplation of mystery, or the search of truth or perfection is a poverty-stricken day; and a succession of such days is fatal to human life.” ~Lewis Mumford
Running through Stourhead--literally running, because the girls don't understand being on time--and yes, even worse than me if that's possible. We only had 45 minutes there, which is sad because a whole day there wouldn't even be enough time, but still it was really fun. This is where Jane Austen gets all her nature inspiration from, and actually where they filmed the new Pride and Prejudice--we even went to that little building where Darcy proposes to Elizabeth in the rain. It was a beautiful place--very romantic and peaceful.
That's the Proposal House in the distance.
And here it is--I may not be the biggest Jane Austen fan in the world, but I am a closet romantic, and that scene in the rain is pretty cute. ;)
