On Saturday I took the bus to Winchester, but unfortunatly got there too late and missed the walking tour. I did take a tour of the Cathedral though, and the crypt. We had to wait quite a while to get in to the quire, as there was a wedding going on. It was just like out of a movie, all these prper ladies streaming out in their color-coordianted hats, with feathers and flowers on them! All very exciting (very few hats to be seen at a wedding at home).

I will have to go back though, as I would still like to take the walking tour, and I managed to miss taking a picture of the front of the Cathedral! Oops. Jane Austen is buried inside, and there is a statue of a diver who spent 6 years under the cathedral propping it up so it wouldn't sink! Don't build your church upon the marshy ground...
