After our visit, we had lunch at McDonalds. Mark was happy for some American food even though it isn't quite the same as back home. The burgers are a little different, but the fries taste the same to me. :-)
Then, Vitaly took us to Khersones which is on the sea. It is the site of ancient Greek ruins as well as St. Voldymyr's Cathedral. Khersones is the birthplace of the Russian Orthodox Christian Church. The cathedral is beautiful and very ornate. Unfortunately, they don't allow pictures inside. But, below are a few pics from the day.
The beautiful building here is the theatre in Sevastopol.
This is a Russian Naval Ship - part of the Russian Navy's fleet is stationed here.

A kitty who came to visit this afternoon and enjoyed the ham scraps VERY much!
For those of you waiting to hear from me, I will try to get caught up on emails in the next day or two. I know I am way behind.
