Friday photo -legend of the merry maidens

Legend has it that these nineteen stones were young women who had the temerity to dance on a Sunday and were thus turned to stone as a punishment. While clearly this is one of those myths to explain a strange phenomenon it does grieve me that it is one which by association reflects negatively on God. All these things have the capacity to subtly influence thinking and while I enjoy myths and legends they are not benign.
