Patron Saint of New Jersey

There's a tiny chapel about 10 minutes west of us on the Paseo Marítimo here in Los Boliches dedicated to Our Lady of Fatima. (Among her claims to fame, apparently, is the fact that she's the patron saint of New Jersey.) This morning around 8:30, we walked by the chapel and saw a leopard-print apparition.

EARLY WEDNESDAY MORNING.
I WONDER WHAT SHE DID TUESDAY NIGHT.

  1. Moved in from Jersey? The leopard print and tan give it away!

      I wish I could have taken more and better photos. I didn't want her to catch me doing it. From Hoboken maybe? So rare to find an American here. Given the local population, more likely from somewhere in England or Finland. Although she could be Spanish; she knew how to walk in those stilettos.

      I had no idea leopards had been so rare here. They're back in force along with a slew of other jungle animals — and many in colors never seen in nature.

  3. She looks to be doing the "Dog Walk of Shame."

      Can you believe it? It was a surprise to me, too, especially since I can't find a patron saint for every state in the union (although now I wouldn't be surprised if there was a big long list -- After all, notaries and nail makers have their own patron saints.)

  5. Yup, she looks like she came straight from the Jersey Shore!

      I didn't get close enough to see if some of the "parts" were obviously fake. But, that's OK.
