recap 3: salisbury, a crafty cathedral

Now, back to business. I mean pleasure.

Still Salisbury Cathedral.

We ditched the group when they went to see the Magna Carta, in favor of looking at textures and grabbing vittles.

Most awesome door:

The colors!

The keyhole plate thingy!

 No idea what this is all about, but it was outside, near the restrooms:

As was this structure which appeared to be a storage shed of some kind:

I love the juxtaposition of this modern utilitarian thing and the cathedral behind.

Also, what is this P and S?

The continuum of pepper to salt?

Gorgeousness:

I wish I could have done a rubbing of it.

I would have to guess that it would have been frowned upon.

Stained glass is pretty:

And so are timeworn things that acquire their own kind of beauty:

mmmmmmmm, textury.

Love how you can see the reflection of the window shapes behind:

And the swirly lettering:

Vittles. We require scones and jam.

Good thing Salisbury Cathedral has a beautiful little gift shop/cafeteria where they sell Victorian Lemonade and Elderflower something-or-other:

And scones:

With clotted cream and jam.

Which we ate in a Cathedral.

In a greenhouse-type room. With sunlight streaming in.

In Actual England.

It was 100% good.
