While my son and his family were here, we made a trip out to Chartres, the famous cathedral of stained glass. It was, as always, fabulous but the weather was so horrible with heavy rain and then wind gusts that we only saw the interior of the cathedral, had some hot chocolate and then staggered, into the wind, back to the car.


The front. It was as famous as Lourdes in its day.


By the door as we entered.


This beautiful area is to the right as you enter the church.


Newly renovated, the windows over the door. They are slowly cleaning and renovated the interior of the church.


A dressed statue of the Virgin Mary.


The famous labyrinth on the floor of the church that some people use as a spiritual exercise.
