The Daughters of Holy Mary of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

Watching events unfold while out for a walk with our baby in his pram led to a slight sprint as I saw this group of nuns walking down the hill from the direction of Plaza Maior toward Rua de Progresso. The color of their robes reminded me of the canopies outside the cafe La Coruñesa which was around the corner on the next street in the direction they were headed. I was able to make this one photograph before the nuns turned into the tourist office to the left. 

A few days later I was able to share the picture with the nuns who were amused and quite happy to be able to practice their English.
