Monastery and Basalt
We love the Monastery community. Mass is beautiful, the people, both visitors and the regulars, are friendly, and the homilies are intelligent. I took these photos for my friend, Monica, who's uncle is the Abbot and is in the second picture! He is celebrating his 50th anniversary as a monk this month. Congratulations and many blessings to you, Fr. Joseph! And I never get tired of the beauty of the area surrounding the Monastery.
Next up was brunch at Cafe Bernard. Good food, and it was so nice that we had a little table outside.
Looks like somebody is going to Italy!
We walked over to the Farmers Market when a bit of a wind came up suddenly. Well, maybe it was more than "a bit!"
Finished up our walk by sharing a macaroon, gluten-free of course. Made by a little bakery in El Jebel. And it was to die for, although quite messy....
