Winchester 〜 ウィンチェスターへ行って来ました

March 11

My “the wife” and I took a day trip from London to Winchester to visit the cathedral today. Before breakfast I had a quick walk in Hyde Park near our London Hotel to see the dawn (photo left). We took off for Winchester after breakfast. I have wanted to see the cathedral and town for years, and we were blessed with a fabulous day, weather-wise for the trip, which is about an hour by express train from London's Waterloo station. We liked the charming town, and, of course, the historic cathedral. Words never do justice to places like this, so here are a few photos.

今朝早起きしたので、ハイド・パークへ散歩して来ました。左の写真のように、日の出を見ましたので、1日の良いスタートでした。

今日、私の”ザ・ワイフ”と一緒にロンドンからウィンチェスターへ行って来ました。大聖堂を見学するのは目的でしたが、チャーミングな町であるウィンチェスター市も楽しみました。ロンドンから急行電車で約1時間かかりますので、日帰りにはちょうど良い距離です。素晴らしい天気に恵まれたので、とても良い一日でした。巨大な、そして、歴史的な大聖堂を言葉で説明するのは無理なので、写真をシェアします。

Winchester Cathedral:

Winchester City has many interesting textures, which were emphasized by the brilliant sunlight

Finally, a photo of “the wife.” She is checking out a local restaurant called So, which claimed to have the world's best bacon sandwich. We were forced to check out this claim. Pretty fine it was.

    Hello you two! So glad you are having a good time and that the weather is cooperating! It has been cloudy and very rainy here so outings are always questionable. Thank you for sending the beautiful photos! They are amazing-especially the interesting and ornate architecture! Quite a sight to see and so good that it has survived all these years, through numerous wars, etc. Hope you both enjoy the remainder of your trip. Safe travels and say hello to “the wife!” 🙂 Love, Phyllis

    Thanks for reading and commenting! Mari and I keep noticing places in London we visited with mom in 1998. It’s kind of a reunion in that sense. We fly home tomorrow. I think I’ll be glad to be home after a month of suitcase living.

    I love the photo of the Morris Minor, and the memorial to “William Lambe, singinge Man…”

    I felt a bit sorry for William, as he lies right under the nave seating. We musicians are truly trod upon, don’t you think? Even after death!
