We had a lovely day yesterday.
After a hearty breakfast we strolled in the sunshine across Constable's meadows towards the cathedral. We don't go in very often and the opportunities for visiting it and admiring its beautiful interior may be somewhat limited in the future, so we took the opportunity to pop in and have a wander around. We were very lucky - a school choir was in rehearing for a forthcoming concert. They sing beautifully!
The cathedral has acquired a new and very beautiful font since I was last inside. The photos don't do it justice. If you find yourself in Salisbury, you should go in and admire it for yourself

|Reflections on Christianity|
|Looking towards the West End|
|and towards the East End|
Then we went for a potter around the city centre and ended up in Wagamama's for lunch

We did head down into the bar at about half past seven in search of a little light refreshment, and found ourselves caught up in the fortnightly pub quiz. We did very badly indeed! We did, however, enjoy a bowlful of chips each, a pint or three of bitter for The Builder and a glass or two of wine for me. It was a good evening, although we didn't stay for the pub quiz tally.
We are taking a train trip to Lymington today. We have decided that we might take our rain jackets!!
