Photo Sunday: The Little Chapel

Today, I was supposed to be taking a trip to the top of the Shard (for non-Brits, that’s the tallest building in London) with my sister, but unfortunately the weather had other ideas and we decided to postpone. So I’m defrosting my freezer instead. Good times.

Anyway, this sadly means I don’t have any cool views of London to share – so here, instead, are some more photos from Guernsey. Which are also cool, obviously, but were supposed to be next week’s post. Hey ho. (By the way, if you missed it, last week’s Photo Sunday was a selection from our trip to the very lovely Sark.)

On my last day in Guernsey, we visited the Little Chapel, which was built in the early 20th century by Brother Déodat, who wanted to create a miniature version of the basilica at Lourdes. Having been told by my friend before we arrived that if I didn’t like it, there was something wrong with my soul, I was feeling under a bit of pressure… but fortunately it turned out to be lovely. Although not great if you’re claustrophobic, because it really is teeny. And probably not an ideal setting for a wedding, unless you have no friends to invite. Which would be a bit sad.

Anyway. The Little Chapel is really cute, and I particularly loved the decoration, which is made up of pebbles, seashells and pieces of broken china. The overall effect is colourful and unique, with lots of little details you only find by looking closely. Here are a few photos for your enjoyment 🙂

    1. Also, it occurred to me that this would have been a really cool place to hide your postcard, but by that point I’d already hidden it somewhere else. Maybe next time 😉
