It’s Friendly Friday again and Amanda”s prompt today is Illumination!
Exactly three years ago this month, the Zendog and I were in Canterbury, England. We had flown from Portland to Amsterdam, and directly from there to Gatwick Airport, about 30 miles south of London, where we took a bus to Canterbury. It was a very long trip, but when we finally arrived, we were pleasantly surprised by the hotel. I knew it was located right in the town center and next to the Canterbury Cathedral, but I didn’t realize what a fantastic view we’d have from our room. Later that evening, we collapsed on the bed, marveling at this incredible historical sight. When I awoke the next morning, I could here shouting outside the window. There was an assembly of sorts with all these young people marching while dressed in military uniforms. I’m not sure what the occasion was, but it went on until everyone finally marched into the cathedral.
Let’s explore the Canterbury Cathedral!
From the town gate to the cathedral entrance
Once inside, I was surprised by how enormous the cathedral really is!
There were stained glass windows all around the cathedral and the sunlight illuminated them beautifully.
The stained glass windows were magnificent!
No two were alike!
After viewing the cathedral, we walked around the vast cathedral grounds, where we came across these boards shining a light on the labor and cost involved in maintaining this priceless treasure!
If you would like to participate in this Friendly Friday challenge, head over to Amanda’s blog for directions and to also check out her gorgeous post on Illumination. Her sunset photos make me wish I was there, but A little bit of Nepal in Brisbane and A Mackerel Sky are my favorites! Go take a look right here!
Thank you Amanda for hosting Friendly Friday! 🙂
