Eli’s Second Blog Entry

As introduced previously, we have taken Eli out of school to go on educational daytrips; in exchange for these excused absences, we have asked him to write a short theme. We later realized that his themes would do very well as blog posts. In order to facilitate this, I am posting both an image and a transcription of each theme (as mentioned before, the transcriptions will be literally that– we will maintain Eli’s spelling choices, etc.). Without further preamble, allow me to present the Stonehenge / Salisbury Cathedral theme, second in the series (though, let us not forget, it was written first).
