Stone Stories

Near Scorhill 17 copy

My husband, step-daughter, the dog and I took a winter's walk on Scorhill Down -- a mystical slice of moorland just past the nearby hamlet of Gidleigh. Greeted by Dartmoor ponies, we followed the boundaries of a farmer's field...

Ghosts in a Stone Circle


You have such a beautiful, beautiful family, Terri. My love to all of them.

Beautiful photos of a wonderful place. We visited Dartmoor a couple of years back, and it's been on my mind ever since. Yearn, yearn, yearn. Thank you for the photos!

What a magical place!

Wow. Thank you for sharing your photos, it's like a vacation for me just to see these beautiful scenes and imagine myself there also.

You have transported me with your beautiful photos. How I wish I could be there. (It helps, I think, that I have two dogs who look just like your dog!)

Thank you, Terri - your pictures and writing are so inspiring!

What an incredible place! I especially love the stone bridge and the circle of stones.

ok...that's it....I have to plan on visiting you all next'll have to be after Mary dies, but I'll be coming hopefully soon, if you'll have to howard and the doggie from me
