After the cathedral, we went to the tapestry museum. Again, Jon waited whilst I went in (his insistence!) What a joy and a wonder! I remember learning about the Bayeux Tapestry at school and drawing Harold with his arrow in his eye. To stand and see the actual cloth... It was an amazing moment. The museum is so well done.

A very busy and exciting day. It's also Bastille Day (France's National holiday) so there will be a lot going on!
