A Place of Quiet Repose

The Chapel of St Mary the Virgin, opened in 1889, looks like a cathedral but is actually the chapel for a country estate, built in a Victorian Gothic design. The inside is spectacular with ornately carved wood and beautiful stained glass windows. An inspirational place of quiet repose.

I was about to ask where it was. Some relatives of mine used to live nearby – lots of rhododendrons there.

You remind me of a moonlit Easter Monday night, climbing the mountainous terrain surrounding Asheville, North Carolina, through a thicket of purple rhododendren. Nature really is our deepest lifelong companion!

First time I have seen a chapel that was beautiful and huge like this. It is like a cathedral here in my place. Thank you for taking me there in your place even in the picture only. It brings joy to my heart. It’s like I am traveling around the world in a blink of an eye.

I can also feel that the place is miraculous. I don’t know why but I can sense it by only looking at your picture. Thank you for taking me there, Carrie.

The Spire Carrie – it is majestic. It points to heaven, taking our thoughts from our everyday problems.

It looks so grand, and is certainly ‘a place of quiet repose’ like you said in your title. I also love to see how it is surrounded by nature. Nature is so peaceful and contributes to the calmness.

Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

Actually, this is a voting security feature. During public voting, only club members can read posts submitted for that contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!
