As late autumn settles in and things slow down, St. Mary’s is just heating up for winter!
St. Mary’s had a successful Fall Bazaar on October 26. It was well attended by vendors, people looking for lunch, and eager buyers of delicious baked goods, snuggly hand-knitted blankets, jewelry, trinkets and treasures, and the usually hard-to-find hand-towels with crocheted tops to hang in the kitchen to keep wet hands off the dish towel.
Lunch was hearty soup and home-made sandwiches. Pie too, of course. A surprise celebration for a birthday took place, and a rich chocolate cake was shared by all. Aromatic and always stimulating, St. Mary’s coffee was a-brewin’ and keeping the chatter at the tables buzzing throughout the day between new and old friends.
Are you a fan of Farmers’ Markets?
Between October 3, 2013 to April 24, 2014 the Highlands Farmer’s Market has moved indoors to St. Mary’s, from 4 pm – 8 pm on Thursdays. If you are looking for something home-made, home-baked, or home-grown, this is the place to be on Thursday evenings.

Now, there was great anticipation for this guy to play at our favourite coffee shop in Victoria. Then he started to play. We sat with frozen grins on faces for first few songs. Then left quickly.
At one point in my life I would have love to live in one of these floating homes.
But now I want one of these condos.
Can we do this without making it look like a self-portrait? Steady now…
