THESE PHOTOS  ONLY REPRESENT A TINY PART OF WHAT CAN BE SEEN AT THIS HISTORICAL SITE.

CIRCLES, SEMI CIRCLES, AND LOTS OF CURVES!  WHEN YOU LOOK AT EACH PHOTO, YOU CAN SEE A CIRCLE IN SOME FORM, ALTHOUGH THERE ARE THOSE THAT ARE MORE OBVIOUS THAN OTHERS.

      THANKS FOR COMING BY TO SEE THE PHOTOS. SEE YOU TOMORROW…..

  1. Beautiful! I loved stained glass windows. I went o a class once where we learned how to make them. After weeks of work I produced a 10inch square piece of stained glass that could possibly represent a boat if you turned it sideways & squinted! I now have so much respect or the people who made those windows!!
