But here's what we've been up to outside ...
|This 75' Celtic cross is made of concrete & fiberglass. There's a wonderful waterfall coming out of the rock on the left that I failed to get in this picture! Sorry!|
|Our Lady's statue is 31' tall and is concrete over a steel framework.|
|A side view of the chapel with a statue called the angel of Revelation.|
|Here's a view from the top of the stations of the cross trail.|
Every week we've been going to the local farmer's market held in Legion Park on the north side of SV. We really enjoy it! And usually find something good to take home. We also get lunch from a food truck and sit at one of the picnic tables to enjoy the live music. Last week Wendell ran into a fellow who was an Army retiree and they had a lengthy conversation. He's met several vets here which I guess isn't surprising -- I think they are posted here, enjoy the area and decide to retire here later. This week we brought home Brussels sprouts, potatoes, oranges, almonds and a big juicy tomato. Besides produce you can usually find booths with salsa, olive oil, wine, soap, yarn, jewelry, wood bowls, quilts, and many many other local crafts. And the SV visitors center always has a booth where you can pick up a free newspaper and schedules of what's happening in the area that week. Here's a couple pictures from this week.
This week we went back out to the San Pedro House and took off on one of their shorter (1 mile) trails. We found the river -- it's the size of what we'd call a creek in Indiana. In fact, it's about the width of the creek that crosses our road back home. It was a beautiful day and we enjoyed that trail. There were benches every whip-stitch -- good for me! We plan on going back and checking out another trail we didn't make it to that day ...
