We journeyed into Georgetown –
and found our way into the parking garage
to emerge to a grand site to behold !
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.
We arrived too late for the tours
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 !
It is just beautiful inside – the floors – the wood work –
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.
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 !
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.
The altars and chapels are numerous
the splendor is just great
