Washington’s Chapel, video

While visiting Washington’s Chapel, Valley Forge, PA, USA, I also took some video inside and out. Here’s a brief look to supplement yesterday’s post:

I’ll be posting more photos and video from Valley Forge in the future. Weather has been difficult lately. Stay tuned here at The Bent Page and my Facebook page. Thank you.

The attached cloister is a good place to meditate. Inside you’ll find a marvelous space with historic flags and stained glass.


And don’t miss the many details, such as this figure in the wrought iron:


There’s plenty to do at Valley Forge so take your time.

Driving to Alta Vista Chapel, Aruba

The Alta Vista Chapel is a tranquil site to visit here in Aruba. The little building sits on a bluff overlooking the sea, perfectly proportioned and quite charming for photographs. Here’s a video showing how to drive there as well as a look inside the chapel itself. I also include a few historical notes about the site.

Alta Vista sees plenty of visitors, especially during the busy season. However, it remains an endearing site. Please treat it with respect. Bon dia.

Aruba Cemeteries

There are many cemeteries in Aruba that feature excellent statuary, fascinating crypts, and haunting images. During my extended stays on the island, I typically take a few strolls through a cemetery or two like the one shown below.

If nothing else, a trip to the cemetery reminds us that no one lives forever. Best to get those things done you’d like to while you’re still alive. Sounds like a cliche, but it’s true.
