The funny thing is that he's not even religious, he just liked the design! It's based on a church he came across in a ghost town in Canada.

Here are some pictures I took over the past week whilst I was there:


lovely! is your dad an architect?

That's absolutely gorgeous. I am not a religious person but I would love to visit and just sit and enjoy the natural setting.

I love the setting; dreamlike. One to sit and contemplate and relax so easily. Hmmm gives me an idea of what to do today

's right. We have to also throw into the mix. But I do not think it is currently the decisive factor. But he has achieved in my opinion too much. Maybe this is crucial if I move him even closer after major victories. But 14 or 17 Grand Slam titles is a significant difference. At the present time there is no question that he must be the greater player than me.

He's 66.

He's not an architect either, just someone who is very good at woodwork!

Some more photos of the property/other buildings he's done. You might realise from one of them that he's a bit of a conspiracy theorist.
