Glastonbury Abbey on a fresh spring day

As many of you know, I live fairly close to the small Somerset town of Glastonbury. Glastonbury is famous for many things, the most widely known of which must be the Festival of Performing Arts - Glastonbury Festival. In earlier times the town was also a centre of religious focus and that is something that has persisted until now. These days Glastonbury caters more for the mystical, the earth and goddess, the alternative and less mainstream learning and sub-culture, and it still keeps a high profile because of that. Glastonbury has been a place of pilgrimage for many centuries and it looks like that will remain the case for as long as there are people with enquiring minds searching for some sense in an ever more baffling world. 

One of my very favourite places in the town is the ruined Glastonbury Abbey. It is a beautiful place and perfect when the earth is beginning to bounce back into life after a long winter. Last Sunday I took Hannah there, explained the history of the Abbey to her and took lots of photos. 

I don't often dedicate my pictures or mini-expeditions but I'm delighted to make an exception in this case. Unashamedly, I dedicate these photos to Monika (gaia_child ). This is one of her favourite spots too and I'm looking forward to being able to deliver her there again later this year.

You can see how beautiful a spring morning it was by the colour of the sky
