St. Paul's Anglican Church, Trinity, Newfoundland

We had a fabulous relaxing weekend on the Bonavista Peninsula, but we didn't stop much!!!  On Sunday afternoon, on our way back up from the Cape, we detoured down to Trinity, as this is my mom's birthplace.  I remember going there as a child, but I didn't remember it being quite so beautiful. 

As we drove around the beautiful, historic community of Trinity, we came upon this gem....St. Paul's Anglican Church.  The building is about 120 years old,and its architecture is fascinating and mesmerizing.  It is hard to believe what could be accomplished with the tools of the day. 

I love old churches and I took the opportunity to stroll around the grounds of this church and go inside. Take a look and step back in time...................










There were numerous large framed photographs in the side foyer at the back of the church, showing all the architect's drawings for the building.....absolutely fascinating!!!!!

I took a shot of an old framed photo of the church, the quality isn't great but I have to share.....................


We had a beautiful weekend, saw lots of fascinating sights and took lots 
of photos........we'll be back!!

Cheers
:)
