Saint Andrew's Chapel at the Naval Academy
Last week during Spring Break, my husband, youngest son, and I took a trip to Virginia to see our middle son, Ian. While in Virginia, we decided to work in a trip to see the Naval Academy in not-too-far-away Maryland, and found a neat place of worship in the basement of the main chapel.

On the floor below the main chapel is a smaller chapel named after the Apostle, Andrew. This small, cozy place of prayer holds some wonderful (and so appropriate!) sea-related religious art.
