Falkland Islands | Stanley | Port Stanley | Christ Church Cathedral | Church of England | Great Britain | Whalebone Arch
Seeing the Church of England's most southern cathedral requires a trip to the Falkland Islands. Located
near the southern tip of South America, the capital city of the island chain is Stanley. It is there where, in
1892, the Christ Church Cathedral became the world's southernmost Anglican cathedral. Made from the
jawbones of two blue whales, a "Whalebone Arch" has stood adjacent to the cathedral since 1933. It was
placed in celebration of the 100th continuous year of the Falklands being a British Overseas Territory.

Are you a history lover?
I'm quite certain that if asked that question, Scott's response would be yes. On the other hand, my reply
would likely be no. But, the older that I get and the more opportunities that I have to travel, I have
become less confident of my answer to the question.
Maybe the real answer is that I didn't like learning history while in school! I've come to really enjoy
learning more about the world that we live in as well as past events. That's history, right? Like, I had no
idea that the Falkland Islands off of the coast of South America are actually a British Overseas Territory.
It's also kind of weird to think that we are currently making "history" for those of the future!
