After the park we headed over to a small island about a half hour away. Found a perfect spot under a tree, and had our picnic. I took so many photos of that beautiful place, that I'm having to make three posts about it - the plant life, the views, and the chapel.
And since today's Sunday, I'll start with the chapel, and other religious-type things, because this island is mainly a retreat center, although they don't chase picnickers away.
This is as close as my camera could get of this gull - he was so pretty
St. Edmund of Canterbury is the patron of the place
St. Richard of Chichester is also there - I'm not sure why.
very pretty stations of the cross - see the squirrels and birds around the edges
an unusual Madonna statue
Jesus preaching from the boat
prayer of St. Edmund of Canterbury
There was another chapel there, too -
but when we went around the back, it was open. Just a place for people to put their petitions, rather than a real church. Very touching.
The chapel itself was small, but beautiful. There was much blue in the stained glass, and several windows had an ocean, or boat theme.
