Mr. and Mrs. Hughes

Patrick and Jane Hughes farmed near the Cape Blanco Lighthouse for more than thirty years. Their home was the capstone of years of toil and hard work. I try to imagine Jane as she lived in this grand house. Her beauty and grace seem to exude from this photo, and I'm sure that if we could have known her then, the sparkle in her eyes would have created added warmth and depth. She was mistress of this home, just as Patrick was lord of the estate.
