The Capitol and the Cathedral


Located rather close to one another, both the Capitol and the Cathedral are imposing structures.








DH and I are flying away to the Southeast and then renting a car to drive to St. Augustine, Savannah, Beaufort and Charleston and places in-between. I've scheduled some posts while I'm gone, but I'll probably add a few pictures that I take on the trip, too.  I am excited to be going to these historical cities! I'd love to meet more bloggers in any of those cities, too.  Hint! Hint!

  1. The cathedral, in particular, looks like a spot of Europe dropped into St. Paul.

  6. I have seen both! I've been to Minnesota quite a few times in my day...I always visited an aunt up there. She has since past but I have great memories of the Twin Cities.

  8. When I see photos of St. Paul and Minneapolis I realize how much I miss living there! Still have a son in Richfield ... I have spent time in the cities you are visiting ... all great destinations. Have fun, travel safe.

  9. Wow! What beautiful buildings! One of these days soon I'm going to post a picture of our local city hall. Compared to spots like these it's modest, to say the least.

    What nice destinations for spring travel! Have a wonderful trip!

  10. I know St. Augustine best and you will have a great time there...be sure to go through the old schoolhouse!

    Looking at the two pictures it reminds me as to how often political buildings look like religious structures. There's probably a reason for that!
