Christ Church Cathedral and the Synod Hall, Dublin


This was such a beautiful site. The cathedral itself, which is off to the right, and the Synod Hall, which is actually an add-on from the late 1800's, I believe. It was formerly a church, and was built around the tower which is much older. It now houses a permanent display on Medieval and Viking Dublin, called Dublinia. 
The actual picture isn't quite so whitish...the scanner really reflected off of the pastel which, in reality is a lot more muted. It get's the point across anyways, I think. It was raining...Hard! But, in typical Ireland fashion, it cleared up in about ten minutes and I was on my way. Here in Bella Coola, if it starts raining, it doesn't usually stop for two or three days (or weeks!)
