Saskatchewan Canada (3) – St. Peter’s College

About 100km east of Saskatoon is the small city of Humboldt.  I spent my childhood here and those memories included a place called St. Peter’s College.  Every time I walked home from our family-owned cafe, I would look down the street and with an unobstructed view, I could see the silver roof-top.

In my latter high school years, I participated in the drama group which held its’ Monday evening classes at this college.  Recently, I revisited this place and found the solitude and beauty most enlightening.
