We were off again around 8 AM. The weather was still a bit cloudy and windy. Our destination was Chelm. (Pronounce it like helmet without the et.) However, my tour guide asked if I would like to take a bit of side trip to explore a manor house. So down the road we went.
Here's where we arrived.
Here are some views.
On the way back to the car we took a look at the Church of the Apostles.
Wlodowa has a very somber history. At the beginning of WWII, 7000 Jewish people lived here. At the end of the war, 143 had survived.
The ethnographic museum is housed in the area that was once the synagogue complex. The altar from the synagogue has been reconstructed and is now housed in what was formerly the Jewish school building.
Other areas of the buildings house exhibits of Polish culture.
Leaving the museum area I noticed this lovely viewpoint.
While there I took this photo of a bee in a rose.
I explained to my guide that the kids at camp often are afraid of bugs and insects, and they will be impressed that Pani got close enough to take a photo of the bee in the flower.
We drove then to the banks of the River Bug. While walking towards the river, my guide noticed the caterpillar.
The river itself is very beautiful.
On our way back to Lublin we stopped by a lake area.
Back in Lublin my guide said, "We have one more stop." We went by the Catholic University of Lublin. In Polish the acronym is KUL. We looked at the John Paul church there. It is yet different from anything else I've seen, but no photos because Mass was in progress, and in fact it sounded like the sermon/homily was underway. We walked through the adjoining monastery grounds. I liked this view.
