Jarvis Holiday - Sunday

July 16, 2017

 Outside the church building in Prague.  The small miracle was getting to church late and being locked out, yet still getting the sacrament.  Luckily for us, the man passing the sacrament to the mothers in the hallway saw us, came over to opened the door and let us in, and then gave us the sacrament.  

An illuminated manuscript and St Wenceslas Crown inside the palace treasury.  Seeing the ancient manuscripts makes one consider the value of books.  Feeling lucky to live in a time when books are so readily available. 

  1. The  Changing of the Guards at the palace.  This was the one thing on Hebe's bucket list for the day. We were able to catch it at 5 p.m, just before the palace closed down for the day.

The crown was a site to see and the size of the gems rivals any of the Crown Jewels in the Tower of London.

A view of St Vitus Cathedral from the Palace Gardens.

Walked to the Prague Palace Gardens after church since it is just a few blocks from the church building.  Ate lunch in the park.  Hebe happily found a swing in a nearby tree and hoped on for a ride.

Rebecca's bucket list - visit the small staircase leading up to the palace.  We also walked the royal route down from the palace and back towards the Charles Bridge.

Sore feet and exhausted children were what we had when we finally hit the Vtlava River
