Beautiful little walk. You can spend 10-30 minutes here walking around. We went late in the day and there was no one around. You need a car to get here.

St. Therese's Shrine on a sunny day - don't know how much better it can get. We drove there and spent a couple of hours enjoying the peacefulness and beauty. It's position away from downtown, on the water and surrounded by beautiful gardens makes for a very reflective retreat, a place you want to linger. If you have a car... More
