Surpirsing Beauty

One thing UF has that FSU is lacking is the Baughman Mediation Center. I was in complete aww as we approached this chapel (for lack of a better term) located at the edge of Lake Alice in the middle of UF's campus.

It really is one of the most beautiful buildings I've ever seen in person.

Actually, beautiful doesn't quite do it. . . stunning, exquisite, magnificent or wondrous seem like better adjectives to describe this out-of-place little building in the middle of swamp country.

Wow. That is beautiful. Did you have a chance to go inside?

Holyoke - we weren't able to get inside. The building is open to the public during the week and then the school rents it out for private events on the weekend. From what I could see through the windows the inside was lined with pews and kept very simple.
