How beautiful, Marilyn! This is delightful. I would love to hear them ring. I bet it's beautiful.

Thank you, Eva and MaryAlice. My husband spotted this bell tower when he was using a nearby library. Yesterday he asked whether I wouldn't like to go photograph it. Isn't he a good person to have around??

Best wishes, Marilyn

Marilyn: He sounds like the very best kind of person to have around! Not only is he very sensitive and observant, but he is in touch with that side of you that sees the unique and extraordinary in what most would overlook. Big snaps for your husband AND for you! What a great team you both make!

There's more. Did I mention that a couple weeks, we're going on an Elderhostel on photography, in southern Utah and northern Arizona, and before it begins we'll be visiting three other "sights" in the Four Corners region. When we travel, Hugh takes pictures--though not nearly as many as I do--and he's getting increasingly good at recognizing promising shots. However the Elderhostel isn't anything that he would have considered just on his own. But he seems very happy to do it with me, and he has worked hard figuring out the other arrangements for our independent little pre-Elderhostel photo trip!

How very beautiful, Marilyn! it reminds me of Greece! The blue, the white and the bells. My best greetings! And thank you for the good wishes for my trip! :-) A new start! May

This bell tower is a part of the Waterloo Lutheran Seminary, which is the seminary of the Eastern Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada. It is located in the campus of the Wilfrid Laurier University, which used to the Waterloo Lutheran University. In addition to theologians for ordained ministry the WLS has a councelling program which is very popular. When you hear the bells ring, worship is about to begin at the seminary's chapel. You are welcome to come and worship together with professors and students.

Thank you, RPL, for your added information. Though I have never been connected with the seminary, I have warm feelings for the institution because, for three years long ago, I taught in the religious studies part of WLU.

And thank you, May, which I didn't do at the time of your comment because I knew you were about to leave for your holiday. Yes, very much the colours of Greece.
