Being a tourist in your hometown.

Thursday was a rainy miserable kind of day, and I had cabin fever. So we ended up at the garden center in town. Although we ended up not buying anything I did walk out with a visitors guide for the area.
We are still pretty new and kind of like tourists around here. Plus it had all the dates for the fairs and upcoming summer events. But as I was thumbing through it I found out that there is a shrine in the area that I knew nothing about...Even though it was rainy and grey and pretty much the worst weather for pictures I had to head over and check this out.

Apparently she stands 7 feet tall and was sculpted in Italy from Carrara Marble- and is also the only religious monument of its kind in Canada.
