Celebrating her 90th birthday at Rosario Resort on Saturday is Romayne Potosky, with daughter Renee and son-in-law Jim Klein. Romayne recognized the stained glass scene in the Music Room as Antwerp, as that is where her mother immigrated from at the turn-of-the-century.
Robert Moran went to Antwerp in 1905 to consult with doctors regarding his failing health. The clerestory window depicts various steamers and sailing ships in Antwerp harbor and major landmarks on the east bank of the Scheldt, including the Cathedral of the Holy Virgin, the late medieval fortress and the Stadhuis, or townhall. The work is signed by L. de Contini, Brussels, Belguim. Maybe Robert Moran and Romayne's mother voyaged back to the United States on the same ship...
Happy Birthday Romayne... we hope to see you on Orcas Island again soon!
