  1. Hello John, lovely postcards. The chapel is beautiful, I love the stained glass windows. Have a happy weekend!

  2. It is still around! I'm glad to learn that, John. Isn't that Google Maps street view amazing? :-)

    1. Google's blog, so I figured I should use their map. ;-)

  4. Inside it looks massive and ornate. Outside it doesn't look that big.

  5. Beautiful! I wonder how many weddings they've had there over the years?

    Did you have a Merry Christmas, John! Hope so! We had a strangely warm one, almost 80 degrees, though I was hoping against hope for snow anyway.

  6. Yes, I've been there but didn't see the chapel. The stained glass windows are beautiful.

  7. The Chapel looks like a lovely spot to sit and pray and think.
