Rosslyn Chapel Adventure























Saturday we ventured south of Edinburgh to Rosslyn Chapel. Sadly, these pictures do not reveal the beauty of this cathedral whatsoever!!! We were not allowed to take pictures inside -- and the inside was definitely the most breath-taking portion of our adventure. Built in the mid-1400's, Rosslyn has a distinct French flair to its interior. Most cathedrals in this area are gothic and made of gray stone. Rosslyn's interior is constructed of a lighter stone. The Chapel has experienced recent notoriety as it was the zenith of Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code.

I was looking at your blog today (at school - shame on me) and one of my students (1st graders) said "where are you in that picture?" i said "oh, that's not me, that's my friend" he said "you look alike"

It brought a huge smile to my face, as that was the best compliment i could get! And it made me miss you!! We are so meeting up when you make it back!
