Virgin del Valle

It is time for this year's Virgin del Valle festival. I am not catholic, but this happens on the beach in front of my condo, it is kind of cool. I don't know the whole story but the Virgin del Valle is the protector of the  local fishermen.

My first year in Lecheria, the Virgin statue was just adobe mud. Each year in preparation for the festival, they improve the statue. She is a work in progress. 


There are actually two statues, a big one...

And a little one.
