Sainte Chapelle in Paris, France - beautiful stained glass church with ribbed vaulting
Sainte Chapelle, Paris. This small chapel is a masterpiece of flamboyant Gothic architecture and one of the most amazing visual experiences of Paris. Much of this is due to its stained glass windows which surround the entire upper floor. So stunningly beautiful are its stained glass interior that even in the Middle Ages, worshipers likened the church to “a gateway to heaven”.

St. Finbarr's Cathedral, Cork, Ireland
St. Fin Barre's Cathedral - Cork City, County Cork, Ireland - begun in 1863 - neo-gothic in style - some 11 church buildings have stood on this site - the foundation is that of a monastic settlement dating back to 606 AD - Choral tradition dates back to 14th century (1300s). Luckily I was there when it was sunny!
Blarney Castle - Cork City, Ireland ♥www.paintingyouwithwords.com - I have heard that you shouldn't kiss the Blarney Stone in this castle. They say the locals have been known to "relieve" themselves on it. I don't know, but I'm going to error on the side of caution. Besides, everyone knows that if you're Irish you have a natural ability for blarney - and I am Irish.

Mont Saint Michel Castle, France, travel bucket list
Mont St. Michael Le Mont-Saint-Michel, rocky, cone-shaped islet in northwestern France, in the Gulf of Saint-Malo, connected by a causeway with the mainland. The islet, celebrated for its Benedictine abbey, has small houses and shops on its lowest level. Above these stand the monastic buildings, many of which date from the 13th century and are considered outstanding examples of Gothic architecture. The entire islet is crowned by the abbey church, about 73 m (about 240 ft) above sea level.The first chapel on this site was founded in 708 by Aubert, Bishop of Avranches , after the Archangel Michael has appeared to him in a dream. The Archangel Michel appeared here in the year 708. The Abbey takes the name of Mont saint Michel. The oratory, consecrated in 709 was served by a community of canons. It apparently survived the Norman invasions, but the observance of the rule became very relaxed. In 966 Richard I, Duke of Normandy, established there the Benedictine monks from St. Wandrille Abbeyunder the direction of Abbot Maynard, who began the reconstructions of the church and other buildings. The church was burnt in 922 and rebuilt on a larger scale by Abbot Hildebert II from 1023, at the time of the monastic reforms in Normandy carried out by Richard II and William of Volpiano. Mont Saint-Michel was built in a strong rock that measures 84 meters height. It is pure granite and is so hard that has resisted the passage of time.Mont Saint Michel was built as a medieval castle. It has two large towers to defend the entrance to the castle. St. Michael is a surety for freedom and thus this sanctuary also became a symbol of the allied landing in Normandy during the Second World War.

Rang some rocks with the kids - great fun ----- Ringing Rocks Park, Upper Black Eddy, PA. A about 7-8 acre field of boulders. When the rocks are struck with a hammer, they ring with a sound similar to a metal pipe being struck.

In Nova Scotia the baby beluga whale came up to our small boat and played fetch with a small ball. It came along side the boat and let us touch it's head. ---- This photo is probably the same whale. A Wild Beluga Whale in Nova Scotia, Canada. Photograph by Richard Hobson.

World's best coloured sand beaches Prince Edward Island Arguably some of Canada’s most iconic beachscapes, Prince Edward Island owes its deep red sands to getting rusty – literally! PEI’s sand (and its soil too) is rich in iron oxide, rust that forms upon exposure to the sea air. And while it ranges from pale pink to deep reddish brown, it’s those vivid dark reds – the same colour as Anne of Green Gables’ hair – that are known around the world. ....Nichole Licht

10 Civilizations That Disappeared Under Mysterious Circumstances What, no Anasazi?
