#Grovely Wood, not far from #Salisbury is one of the largest woodlands in #Wiltshire, #England. This ancient woodland is the habitat of the Purple Emperor butterfly. The wood is an Iron Age archaeological gold mine with a Roman road over 7000 years old. It is notorious for the #HandselSisters. Accused of #witchcraft and blamed for a smallpox outbreak in 1737, they were taken to the woods and murdered. Beech trees mark their graves and warn locals of the danger of consorting with the devil.

Travelling to local lavender farms has been a #Number1 Staycation destination this summer. A stroll through the lavender bushes, naturally social-distanced, enjoying the scent and the buzz of the many bees has been has been very hot with the Instagram kids. Many of these farms sell lavender products and have lavender plants for sale. Late August is harvest time for late in August. #Staycation #Lavender #LavenderFarms #LavenderProducts #England #France #USA #Bees #flowers #farms

Brightly colored scarecrows attract your attention as you drive along R44. The quest for the next vineyard on the wine tasting tour temporarily put on hold. This is the Mooiberge Farmstall and a collection of other curiosities so intriguing, they might make you stop drinking wine. The shop is packed with a variety of sundries and The Thirsty Scarecrow is a good place for a pint. If you are in Stellenbosch Oct.-Jan, you can pick strawberries! #oldbagonaplane #SouthAfrica #TravelAddict…

Very Berry in Stellenbosch, South Africa

A #WitchBoard/#OuijaBoard is a flat board with an alphabet to spell out answers to your questions A 'planchette' moves around the board with the touch of the participants.  The museum's exhibit has original boards from the 1880's to novelty boards from current TV shows like Stranger Things. The presentation is a proper #Spiritualist parlour, and a true throwback to times gone by. #salemwitchboardmuseum #halloween #NewEngland #witches #museums #wanderlust #momentsofmine #solotravel #salem

This new, dubious and unofficial, addition to the blue plaque tour is at an unlikely location. Kensington Wine Rooms was the meeting place of George Papadopoulos and Australian diplomat Alexander Downer in May 2016. Papadopoulos disclosed the Trump campaign's knowledge of Russian 'dirt' on Hilary Clinton.  After the DNC hack, Downer alerted the FBI and began Mueller investigation into the 2016 presidential campaign. #Trump #MuellerReport #London #momentsofmine #kensingtonwinerooms
