The Lodge at St. Edward State Park


5/17/21 St. Edward State Park

After a week of beautiful sunshine, our mini sketch outing turned out to be cold, cloudy and windy. It was so good to be out sketching with friends again, though, that I didn’t care!

Kate, Roy and I chose St. Edward State Park in Kenmore, where a former seminary has been transformed into The Lodge, a beautifully restored hotel. During my first walk-around, I zoomed in on an excavator, of course, as work continues on improvements to the grounds. Afterwards, I went around to the back for another view of the bell tower. Chilled, I sat in my car for a few minutes with yet another good view.

The Lodge rooms are pricey, as are the restaurant meals. We opted for a brown bag lunch at one of many picnic tables and warmed up afterwards with coffee inside. The friendship and sketching? Priceless.

So good to be out sketching with friends again!
