The ruins of the Benedictine St. Mary’s Abbey, founded 1055, once the richest abbey in the north of England. These hauntingly elegant remains lie on a steep slope west of York Minster Cathedral in the city of York, North Yorkshire. I can’t think of anything more alluring and romantic than ruins.

   Postscript: Ha I shouldn’t have written about the wonder of ruins when there was a tornado coming; however I did the post earlier and we have survived the first line of storms so BRING ON THE NEXT I will survive!! (Gloria Gaynor song begins playing) THANKS THANKS to everyone who wrote such nice things!!!
