“A group of nuns from the Order of Saint Benedict enjoyed their summer vacation at the beach in Grayland. Here Sisters Ruth (left) and Agnes play in the surf; partly hidden is Sister Rita. After a weeklong break they returned “refreshed and strengthened” to their routine duties of teaching school in the Seattle and Tacoma area.”
