Today is Sunday and we attended a worship service at the Dome Cathedral in Old Riga. The Pastor is American and at some time lived in Huntsville, Alabama. It is an interdenominational service, but appears to be more of a Presbyterian worship. It was nice to be standing in such a beautiful cathedral.....the oldest church in the region. The pastor has such a kind demeanor and a beautiful voice. We will definitely attend again next Sunday, however we miss our North Point Baptist service.
After the service, we went to the park to take some pictures. There is a tradition here in Latvia for couples when they wed. There is a bridge in the park and the couple attaches a lock to the iron handrails to signify their union. They have the lock engraved with their names and wedding date....what a beautiful sentiment!
It was so pleasant sitting in this beautiful park enjoying the sun. We watched families walking and catching the tram....such a relaxing day.
Here are some pictures from our walk today....
