.......yes.....this is where we live! Life on Pleasant Chapel is actually just down the road from Claylick which is around the corner from Chickenville (woops.....no "e" !) -Hill. These historic photos were provided to me from John Allee, a professional photographer who is part of our now fast developing Licking Valley Heritage Society on which I serve as a trustee. How neat to see these pictures which depict things as I remember them when we first moved here.
I used to have children attend Toboso from this house at the corner of Rt 668 and Claylick Rd.

First forgive the fact I had to stoop to the internet for these shots but I didn't take my camera with me. While Pat enjoyed the beach the pool and a massage, I went to Akumal (shown above). I was actually RIGHT HERE...and swam to the reef's in this bay. ....omnly to see sights like these........
"Oh Lord my God...do I in AWSOME WONDER.........consider ....ALL....the the WORLDS thy hands have made..."
It's great to snorkle and CONSIDER...this....one of His most awsome and colorful creations!
THEN SINGS MY SOUL.....HOW GREAT THOU ART!!
What an eye popping mind extending day this was. We visited an ancient Mayan ruins left from a very complex and highly organized society. I mean....these people could build.....and count. They were mathematical genuses! For example they created a calendar based on 365 day year and were very into the cycles of the moon etc.
.......the main "Pyramid" of the site is built with 4 sets of 91 steps each plus the throne in the top makes 365. Twice a year on the days of the the spring and fall equinox a shadow is cast on this building so that over 20 minutes a snake shadow appears moving from the top to the bottom of the structure. I saw a picture but today was not the day!
......they built comlex buildings, a ball field and recorded their life in petroglyphs all over the place......
