In the candlelight





We stood on the bridge overlooking the river. The air was filled with murmurs and laughter. Our breath rose in clouds above our heads. We held our lit candles and slowly walked along the river bank, up into the beautiful cathedral. We commented on how we couldn't wait for christmas and how magical this moment was. Together we stood in the cold building as we were welcomed to the cathedral and taken through its history. In the candlelight we all fell in love with Durham and its spontaneous moments like this. A candlelight procession on a dark Autumn evening. Beautiful.
