No, it wasn't just an average Sunday in England but instead it was a stellar Sunday.
The "C" refers to our agenda -- for the day was filled with
Car Boot Sale
And actually, the Car Boot Sale was in Cheltenam and was very much like the Swap and Shop we go to occasionally in the city -- but with English merchandise!!!
As son-in-law Andy says, a sale in any country is really the same!!! And he was right!!!
But I did find two treasures and got some change with a 20 -- so car boots can be fun!!!
We then headed to Glouster . . . where we visited the
We've never been to Glouster cathedral and it, in my opinion, is one of the most magnificent. We were treated not only to a feast of the eyes with wonderful stained glass windows but also the bells were playing and then we were treated to a choir rehearsal!!!
It was certainly a magical visit!!!
And then for the third "C" -- the
Sudley Castle near the village of Winchcomb (where we were the other day). It's a lived in castle and a favorite of ours -- having been there before some years ago. It's Catherine Paar's home -- that's it's claim to fame. The grounds are amazing for the gardens are wonderful -- thanks to Emma Dent -- a Victorian grand dame who lived in the castle from 1856 to 1900. Her yew hedges are amazing!
As to the Boot Sale and the 20 that I still had change from . . .
I got two pictures -- twins
Engravings which are hand colored and signed by the artist -- they're French dated 1919 and 1913. Treasures I think and . . .
A darling ladle -- for mayonnaise or sauce -- it's "cup" shaped and needs a good polish.
But I think for 1 pound, it should fit in very well at Linderhof.
As is our Sunday custom, we have a Sunday Lunch at a pub -- and for dinner, it's cheese and crackers and wine . . . we had our dinner in the garden this evening after we got home. It was a great end to a great day!!!!
