What I did
Went to the Campus
We set our for Notre Dame at about eleven. The church on campus is the Basilica of the Sacred Heart. It was constructed in 1871, several years after the university was founded in 1848 by the Holy Cross Fathers.
We parked across campus near the bookstore and walked about a quarter mile to the church. It's a beautiful edifice with stained glass windows imported from France. At one time it had the largest collection of such glass outside of France.
But... the building was just the beginning
Later we visited the bookstore and shopped before going to lunch near the campus. We found Five Guys and Fries very close and had a fine lunch. Being a Sunday, it was quiet there when we arrived and gradually a good crowd appeared. The food, simple though it was, was very good. Since the weather was so poor, we didn't go to the ND stadium, but did see it from a distance. No sign of Lou Holz. Where the heck is he anyway?
We shopped a bit in Elkhart and now we're snug, cozy and dry in our house. We'll be setting off in the morning for Wisconsin. Lynnie has family in WI, all deceased, but we intend to visit the gravesites near Berlin.
