Little Blue Church with a Golden Dome

The congregation of Saints Peter and Paul Romanian Orthodox Church was organized in 1942.

Originally the church was located on a farm about ten miles north of Bonnyville but in 1952 the parish decided to move it into town where it presently stands in a quiet residential area.  A few years later in 1954 the altar sanctuary (apse) was added and in 1959 the golden dome was built.

The exterior has recently received new paint, new windows and a new roof.  I would imagine the interior is as lovely as it's always been.

The Statue at Elk Point

An impressive wood carving at the north entrance to Elk Point, Alberta.

Another protective parent keeps an eye on me from on top of the tall fence.

A small part of one of the trails through the vast and seemingly endless Grasslands National Park in southern Saskatchewan.  A wonderful place to spend the day.

Last visited Milly about five years ago.

She seems to be holding her own.
