St. Mary's Basilica

It's Pink and Sightseeing Saturday time and I won't take you too far away because I still have to pack. I am posting this in advance. Go over at Beverly at http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/ and look at all the pretty pinks that she and her participants posted. This is St. Mary's Basilica in Natchez. I did not know it was blue hour when I took this picture. I was surprised to see how blue the sky was. Isn't it gorgeous?
The construction of the church started in 1841.
It is located downtown where the streets are lined with pink and white crape myrtles.



Behind it is a park with this cannon.


Behind the cannon is a beautiful fountain.

Another pink contribution is Zoe's pink outfit.






To the right of the cannon is this tall monument erected in memory of the Confederate dead soldiers from Natchez and Adams County.







To the right of the church is a marble Armed forces memorial.


Well, I better go packing so that's it for now. Thank you so much for coming by. I'll catch up reading your blogs when I get back.
Thanks to Beverly for hosting this meme.

Christine, the blue in that first photo is amazing. Love all your other photos, too. Such a beautiful place. You just travel and go places all the time. I am still not getting your comments in my email so I keep checking for them in blogger.

Although we are not Catholic, we attended Mass at that church when we visited Natchez with some Catholic friends. It's beautiful.

Have a great trip.

What a great family photo at the Marine monument! Those kids are all adorable. The church needs to use your picture of the blue hour in a publication. it's beautiful. laurie
