Duke University...

While we were in North Carolina visiting Michael and Alisa,
we took a drive to Duke University. 
I had no idea how beautiful the campus was,
how impressive the buildings were... 
 
 or that it called this amazing Chapel home.

 The hubs and I with Duke Chapel in the background.

 Duke is a private, research University,

 in Durham, North Carolina.

 The campus has been nick named The Gothic Wonderland
because of the Neo-Gothic Architecture.

 The buildings are massive and beautiful.

 Here we are with Mike,

and one more image of another building on the West Campus.
 
Tomorrow, I will show you inside the Chapel, it will take your breath away!!

  2. Oh, man! What a gorgeous campus! That chapel is something else. It reminds me of the chapel at Princeton University. Have you been there? The first time I walked inside, a woman's voice was filling the entire space with the strains of Ave Maria. (She was practicing for a wedding that was to occur later that day.) The experience was otherworldly.
    And, I must agree with Andy, you did a great photo job there at Duke. Can't wait till tomorrow to see the guts..er...inside. Sorry, my nursing background pops up from time to time.
    Happy day, friend!

  6. college campuses are a great place to tromp around. Gotten lots of good shots right here in Tampa at USF. Last year when I was in El Paso I visited UTEP (my alma mater)...couldn't believe how much it had changed.

    I'm rambling...Happy Monday to you.

  20. I had no idea, either! And I'm so, so glad that you blogged these pictures and are going to post the inside of the chapel, because when someone says "Duke", my mind has gone to the horrific lacrosse scandal and the world of the entitled athlete v. the struggling, emotionally wounded poor ... thank you, thank you! for giving me a new perspective!!!
