However, I borrowed my son's charger and it is nice to be able to read blogs and Facebook on a big screen instead of squinting at my iPhone!
I had any number of photos to share, but because I was (or rather my computer was) out of commission, I was unable to post them.
So, this will be a photo heavy post! Apologies to my Facebook friends who have already seen some of these pics!

|Charles and Ana prep for the iconography workshop (the reason we were in Sitka)|
We were in Sitka for 10 days, the two weekends were devoted to an iconography workshop that Charles taught to 8 very dedicated students, and during the weekday evenings he taught some adult religious education at St. Gregory Catholic parish. I had a chance to read, crochet, walk and have some quiet time. We stayed in the apartment at the home of Fr. Michael Boyle and his wife Matushka Magdalena. They have a lovely home and we were even able to join them to watch Downton Abbey (which I would have been sorry to miss). We made some new friends, visited with some old ones, and really enjoyed our time together.
I really recommend Sitka for a destination - it has natural beauty and small town charm!
