Big Ben, Parliment, & Westminster Abbey

To see Big Ben and Parliment in pictures is awesome, but in person you really see the intricacies of design. I could sit and stare at them for a long, long time.

We attended the Evensong service at Westminster Abbey and it was one of my favorite experiences. The building itself was so beautiful. And to experience it in a setting of worship was really special. Instead of merely being a museum or a monument to man's achievement and history, it became something higher and holier. I think that buildings like Westminster Abbey can only be fully appreciated in a religious setting. It's there that they fill the measure of their creation.

So true Jessi! Those buildings, with all of there intricacies, need to be experienced in person. And having the opportunity to attend a service at Westminster was well worth it. I also like how these historical buildings are still being used for their intended purposes.
