The train ride out here was delightful! The rolling countryside with bright yellow grape seed crops is gorgegous. We have an AirBnB here, there is a co-op around the corner with locally grown, very reasonably priced, delicious food/groceries! It has been one of my favorite spots so far :) We can walk there which is awesome, especially with the perfect mid 70s weather.
This morning we went to Salisbury Cathedral. We went to St. Paul’s yesterday. St. Paul’s in London has the second largest dome in England (St. Peter’s in the Vatican is the largest) but it does not compare to the amazing architecture in the Salisbury Cathedral. Photography heaven right there.
During the WWII, Salisbury was not bombed because the Cathedral acted as a landmark giving directions to pilots. It’s tower stands at just over 400 feet. It was built in the 1200s and took 38 years to build the main Cathedral. The thought behind the alignment of archways and windows – of which there are 365 (number of days in a year) and 8760 pillars (number of hours in a year) – is extraordinary.
