St. Joseph’s Convent

This pretty yellow house was the original convent for the Sisters of St. Joseph back in the 1800′s. The Sisters started the St. Joseph’s Convent school which has now evolved into the well-respected and well-restored St. Michael’s Academy.

More from our Artisans

All of my shots had glare today so I’m putting one up from Saturday’s walk that I didn’t get to use. This is the back deck of a pretty little art gallery/ studio that’s always bright and colorful. And, to our friends and family up in the snowy, cold north, this color’s for you.

Please Wait Your Turn at the Buffet

The fishermen around here always have an attentive audience while they clean their catch. The pelicans are usually polite but I’ve seen them try to pluck the fish right off the boat. I love to watch as they’re flying along way above the water and suddenly spot their prey below. They simply stop flying and […]
