Visiting York, England

West side view of York Minster Cathedral
5 1/4 x 3 1/2", pen and ink study

Yesterday was another day filled with adventure, awe and wonder. Robert and I took the train from Harrogate to York, ready to explore and study all that we could in one day. Once again we found ourselves surrounded by beauty and fascinating history. Our first visit (after the coffee shop), was to the York Minster. I had to sketch at least part of it. The heart shape that you see in the lower, large Great West Window is fondly called "The Heart of Yorkshire" and was completed in 1338. If you ever have the chance to visit York, the fee for seeing the inside of the Minster is well worth the cost and your ticket is valid for one year.
