Now the weather is warming up, we're having to be increasingly careful not to bump into any peeps/tourists on our trips as can mew imagine; the TTTB materializing, ten cats filing out, all looking for the best spot to stand while we take a selfie. Then ten cats trooping back inside the TTTB and vanishing moments later into thin air! 

We don't want videos like that getting out on the interwebs! MOL

Here's a little bit of info from BBHQ's Historical Travel Guide, Smooch:

Greetings to all the history aficionados and travel enthusiasts out there!

Tucked away in the scenic landscapes of Cumbria on a small plateau northwest of Moor Divock lies the enigmatic Cockpit Stone Circle, a mesmerizing relic from ancient times that continues to intrigue and inspire visitors. This Neolithic wonder boasts a diameter of approximately 28 metres, with its origins dating back over 5000 years to the Bronze Age, around 3000 BC and comprising of around 75 stones set into a bank. Some of these are fallen or sunken, with some standing no more than a meter tall. The circle is nestled amidst breathtaking natural surroundings, enveloped by sweeping vistas of rolling hills and serene beauty.

The purpose of the stone circle, a subject of fascination and speculation, adds to its allure. Theories range from its use as a ceremonial site to its significance in astronomical observations or communal rituals. As mew wander through the hallowed grounds of The Cockpit Stone Circle, mew're transported back in time, contemplating the rituals and traditions of the ancient people who constructed this pawe-inspiring monument.

For history enthusiasts and those captivated by the antiquity, mystery and utter epicness of these ancient monuments, The Cockpit Stone Circle offers a rare opportunity to delve into the past and marvel at the enduring legacy of Britain's archaeological heritage. Whether mew're drawn to its mystical allure or yearn to immerse yourself in the timeless allure of Cumbria's countryside, this historic site promises an unforgettable journey through the archives of time.

Happy Trails

We're off on a garden safari, and then we're snoopervising the P.A. while she checks the newly planted catnip seeds. WE CAN'T WAIT FOR THOSE TO SPROUT! MOL

Smooch is in the kitchen, so lunch will be on time. This afternoon, I think a nice catnap and maybe a movie is in order. What about mew?

I'll be here tomorrow with some brand new puzzles on Brain Training with Cats, and I look forward to your company then.
