Papa’s World – Washington National Cathedral – visit.

Good Morning

We journeyed into Georgetown –

and found our way into the parking garage

to emerge to a grand site to behold !

Washington National Cathedral

It had been damaged somewhat during a earthquake we experienced

in Northern Va.

But – it was restored although we could see ongoing work on the side.

Sherry and Paul

We arrived too late for the tours

Jo – Paul and Sherry
with a tour guide

But one of the guides gave us tips and instructions and directions !

We were able to explore on our own

and although we have been here a dozen times

we found areas thanks to him

that we had never been in !

One of the many chapels
Jo and Sherry

It is just beautiful inside – the floors – the wood work –

The many altars
So many chapels and altars
Paul – Jo -Sherry
Sherry lighting a candle
for a loved one

We even made it into the basement –

the crypts and more chapels that we had never seen.

Our retiring Pastor Joe – on the first Monday of every month

does a service here in the Cathedral.

Outside the children’s chapel
The altar
The gift shop
in the basement !

I had no idea there was a second gift shop

in the basement that actually does more business

than the one upstairs

as all the tours go thru there !

Although I did not capture a picture
we were able to take the elevator
to the seventh floor tower!

We took the elevator to the seventh floor

again I did not know we could do that

and for the first time we gazed around

Georgetown and DC.

Thank you for reading today’s blog.
