Yale

This weekend I took a short day trip down into Connecticut. I met up with mom in New Haven for a visit to our awesome natural allergist.  After we were done we spent some time together walking around Yale.
 I had no idea that their crest has Hebrew on it! It means "light and truth" in English.
So much amazing architecture - it just felt like a giant castle grounds. 
 The gates, the arches, the stone. I just love the gothic architecture.
They also had some fun sculptures, including a Calder.
It was a short but lovely visit. A nice fall afternoon spent wondering a beautiful campus.

Yale is indeed classic in architecture. Your shots are elegant. I visited the campus one time and would go back in a minute. I'm glad you enjoyed your afternoon there with your mom!

How pretty!! I always love wandering around university campuses in the fall. It's like the wealth of ideas are just floating around, tangible, in the air.

The campus is beautiful! There is something about university campuses that I love. Just like what Jade said, maybe it's the "wealth of ideas are just floating around, tangible, in the air." :)
