Lepanto Photos

Io! I'm home from school for a week! And Picasa works here! So I'm going to post a bunch of pictures I took at school. First, here are some pictures I took on the anniversary of the battle at Lepanto. Ambrose read out GK Chesterton's great poem down by the Shenandoah, while a group of students listened raptly...

Heading into the mysterious greenwood, haunt of Mexican bandits and
Friday-night revellers.

Setting the scene...

"It is he that saith not 'Kismet'; it is he that knows not Fate;
It is Richard, it is Raymond, it is Godfrey at the gate!
It is he whose loss is laughter when he counts the wager worth,
Put down your feet upon him, that our peace be on the earth."

The participants.

Next year I want to fix up a lot of canoes with flags and oars and stage the battle out on the river. Now that would be fun! The only difficulty I see: No one would want to be the Turks.
