Cool Photo!

I love old pictures…the charm or grandeur of the grainy black and white. When I came across this photograph of Melrose Abbey. (Scotland, founded in 660 CE by St. Aidan, destroyed by Richard II in 1385, and rebuilt.)

It is interesting to note that Melrose Abbey is the resting place of Robert the Bruce’s heart. Seems his comrades in arms brought the Bruce’s heart back from the Crusades and buried it under the abbey floor.

Gotta love Abbeys.
