A Day in late May

A random Friday in late May brought a cool and semi foggy morning with the promise of afternoon sunshine. I had some suncatchers to drop off at CraftologySJ so Monica and I decided to go together and enjoy a walk in the city. Then home to enjoy the back yard for the rest of the day… including a surprise visit from Monica’s brother and his wife.

The highlights, in cronological order, are as follows:

  • Visit to the Saint John Jewish historical museum – I wanted to go for the stained glass windows but walked away with much more. The very knowledgeable Catherine gave us a guided tour through the museum and the lives of the early Jewish families in SJ. This beautiful building was formerly a senator’s residence (1897) and then a funeral home for many years before the Jewish Society aquired it. It now houses the synagogue after the original church was closed in 2007 due to low membership.
  • Photo stroll with Monica through Queen’s Square to the harbour front
  • Stop off at CraftologySJ to deliver suncatchers
  • Visit to Cobalt Gallery on Prince William St. where somebody may have just laid away a certain sculpture by Inuit artist Mikisiti Saila for somebody’s birthday ☺
  • Lunch at Ta-ke Sushi (double salmon roll…!!!)
  • Stroll up King’s St., through the city market and through King’s Square
  • Visit to a decommissioned church on Germain St., now a Children’s Interaction Theater Company. The stained glass is abandoned and some of it badly cacked… but I saw lovely fragments including a square glass “dome”.
  • Wine, munchies and conversation with Stuart and Darlene on the back deck.

  1. All those tulips made me think of Ottawa. Looks like you caught them at the perfect time.
