Toward their destiny

On this part of the trip, we’d rented a cottage in Stow-on-the-Wold and made day trips from there. We’d start each day with an idea of where we were heading, but for various reasons those plans almost never worked out.

We DID mean to be in this town, but only because I had it confused with someplace else that I’d seen on a previous visit. After a pub lunch (in a building that dates to ~1400), we wandered around the churchyard. I’d like to tell you that I set up the shot of that couple walking toward the graveyard. But I just hate to lie to my loyal reader(s), so I’ll go ahead and let you know that was a lucky composition that went unnoticed until I got home. Sometimes these things work out…

Hannah on a hill, with tower

Miss Hannah Harvey stretches her legs on a hill in front of the Broadway Tower. (This was a vacation treat: we don’t have hills at home.)

Layers

Walk the perimeter inside the old cathedral and you’ll be rewarded with a stunning view of intricate interior walls and ceilings beyond. (In case you were wondering, the Cathedral opened on April 8, 1093.)

No apprehension here

Mid-morning, and the light coming into the Lady Chapel was lovely.

A Higher Power

You can’t even imagine how happy it made me to see this power cord right there on the ancient column. (I am very easily entertained. Apparently.)
