Thanks for joining us on the last day of our wonderful Welsh holiday. What a place. This little break was our wedding present from Shona and Mike. And what a gift it has been!
Today they took us to St. Davids. Now I know it to be a city and not a town because it has a cathedral, and we’d already been told it is the smallest city in Britain. But what I wasn’t expecting was the humongous cathedral! The size of it! Honestly, We came through the gateway and it took my breath away! It’s vast! The cathedral, girls! The cathedral!
I suppose since it is the Smallest City in Britain, my head had decided it would have the smallest cathedral in Britain too. NOT!!!!! It’s up there with Winchester and Canterbury! Those bishops certainly didn’t flinch when it came to home comforts, eh! We went up into the library, and the elderly, very well read and informative librarian was telling us about the copy of the Magna Carta and all sorts of literary treasures they keep in their archives. Impressive. Very impressive. I love the smell of old books, don’t you? There’s not just an ancient wisdom in those old leatherbound pages, but a powerful link with our past, between our Then and our Now.
After that little-big surprise, we went on to Druidstone for lunch. Another little treasure trove off the beaten track. Spectacular views, plenty of climbing and young fun.
Another formidable day in formidable Wales with formidable friends.
Love and hugs,
