Most buildings of downtown Charlotte Amalie are pretty weather beaten. They are made of cement or stone and are in various states of disrepair. Some are freshly painted and distract your eye from the deterioration, while the grime on others adds to the character of the entire place. The Cathedral is no different. It is undergoing a restoration and parts are clearly very well redone, but the adjacent school and courtyards bear the truth of where the Cathedral was just a short while ago. On so on Sunday, while we were waiting I went on a walkabout.
ps. if you click thru on the photo you will see the other photos in the set...I am experimenting with using Flickr as a blogging tool and I can't seem to get more than one photo blogged at a time (which maybe is a good thing.)
