Mallory and her room mate were quite excited about their new place, and I have to say as far as college apartments go it was better than I expected. Yes, the carpet is a little nasty, but they did get a fresh off the truck and out of the wrapper, couch and chair.
The girls graciously let me bunk with them for a couple of nights until Glen came up and we moved to a hotel. Friday morning while they were still sleeping (they ARE college students, and I AM an early riser) I quietly showered, ate some breakfast and slipped out to take some photos of around town. I love Marquette, and I will miss coming here when Mallory graduates. There are so many wonderful old buildings and great memories here.
My main objective was the St. Peter Cathedral. I have been participating in a photo a day project for the month of August from Susannah Conway called August Break 2013. The prompt for Friday was sacred, what better than a Cathedral.
Glorious detail on the building and it fit perfectly for scared.
After the Cathedral, I decided to wander over by the harbor.
Getz's is an outdoor clothing store and one of our favorite stores in town.
Doncker's is a MUST eat at every time we are here.
The Scarecrow Sandwich. YUM!!
One last stop before going back to the apartment. Mallory knows of my love for old cemeteries, so she told me I should check out this one.
I will be coming back here when I have more time and when I bring my dslr with me. I left it home this trip because we needed the space for other things.
I am joining my friend Helen for her Weekend Walk blog link up. We would love for you to join us.
