Our second day . . . Canterbury, London. Photos by Michael Kennedy
The webmaster took off for a wet half-Tuesday in historic Canterbury, 30 miles southeastThe oldest part of town is crowded around the entrance to the Cathedral CloseThere's no other way to see the cathedral than pay to enter through this gateFrom inside the gate you can't get far enough for a full view shotThe cathedral inside is bisected by a high platform in the back half of the narthexAround the back, the ruins of an even older edifice
The view from the side makes the best pictureA different angle with a blue castIn the old part of town, a narrow cobblestone street that's witnessed most of England's historyA Norman wall skirts the town next to a motorwayBack in London, the three of us found our way to Trafalgar SquareThe Spire of St. Martin's in the Field over Trafalgar
