There are always so many wonderful details to see in a Cathedral. It can be overwhelming to your senses and there is no way to take it all in on one visit.

I’m moving along with my England posts. I have one more for Hereford that includes a Hereford Bull. We also finally made it to the River Wye which is a long curling river. When in this part of England and Wales we stayed in Ross-on-Wye and visited Hay-on-Wye and finally crossed over the river Wye on foot while in Hereford.

I do enjoy Autumn and am happy to welcome October. Hope all is well in your October world.

About Ellen am a wife, mother, baba (grandmother) and a loyal friend. Jesus is my King and my hope is in my future with Him.

  1. You truly are a wonderful tour guide as mentioned by “ivoryspring”! Your photos are amazing.
    Blessed October to you Ellen. My first day of October included a funeral, another funeral on Friday, a nephew’s wedding on Saturday, and celebrating the birth of a great niece! It’s only Wednesday but I will look up and try to keep calm.

  2. I am always amazed at the workmanship in those cathedrals…so intricate.
    I was thinking about you this evening as we attended the Kiev symphony and choir and they had the acknowledgment of MGCC’s support of Ukraine on the slides and of course, the books for sale.

  3. You are so right about those cathedrals – all the detail is overwhelming, and not easy to capture on the camera because they are often so huge inside. A bit like trying to photograph the Grand Canyon, or so it seemed to me when we were in England. But you certainly have shares some very beautiful bits and pieces with us. That corona is so intriguing. Looks like it is floating in mid-air; I am trying to figure that one out!
