You might be interested in a few close-ups of unusual architectural detail. These first two shots are from Notre Dame - looks like serpents projecting from the structure.
The following are from Oxford. We spent most of the day at Blenheim Palace (approximately 10 miles from Oxford), so we didn't arrive until late afternoon. We jumped on the open-top tour bus for a quick overview (short 'window of opportunity' for pics). The architectural detail was amazing - very eclectic. We had dinner at 'The Eagle and Child' pub (favorite hangout of C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien) - an item from Jan's 'to do' list.
These last two are part of the drainage system!
Hope to get back into the sewing room soon - lots to catch up on when you're gone for two weeks!
