Mrs. Robertson’s regular place

Mrs. Robertson seems to be very intent on having the same seat every time she attends Mass, doesn’t she?

Every now and then I’ll spot someone’s special cushion in a church (like this time in Mavillette, Nova Scotia), but this was the first time I’d noticed one that was labeled.

always, she gazes toward the sea

This stone Madonna spends her days gazing toward the sea, which is fewer than five miles away.

My in-laws used to live very close to this place, but in all our trips there we’d never stopped in at the church. I took advantage of proximity while on the Patient Spouse’s recent Nostalgia Tour 2019, and was finally able to see the interior. It was lovely.

Hose

I went around behind the cemetery’s statues, as I do, because that’s where I get to find things like this water hose coiled on the ground.
