On the second day of our tour, we visited the city of Durham and Hadrian's Wall. This beautiful structure is Durham Cathedral, which was founded in AD 1093. It was magnificent.
You can see this little flower garden in the picture above and in close-up below. I am collecting all of these ideas for my own home garden.
There was a very old cemetery in front of the cathedral.
Durham also had the cutest little shopping area. Of course, I had to photograph the most amazing ad in all of Europe in one of the store windows.
Hadrian's Wall, begun AD 122 by the Roman emperor Hadrian.
We visited a section of the wall at the city of Heddon-n-the-Wall. I loved that you could climb on top of it and walk along it. History is so much more interesting when you can touch it. It was hard for me to comprehend just how old this structure is.
Yeah, check out how white my sneakers are. You almost don't even notice the wall, do you?
