Mepkin Abbey Statues and Such


This is a statue of Jesus and Peter in the cornfield, if you know that story.


Ahh, the lovely evenings!!! The sun was beginning to set and I just love how this oak looks, hanging over the water here!!



After hurricane Hugo, a couple great oak trees got knocked down. One of the monks carved this with a chain saw!!! Crazy, huh? It's the Holy Family in the flight to Egypt.


And, it's also a chair!!!!



This is another one of the oaks that got knocked down. Brian and I sat there and watched the lizards for a while and talked about stuff.



This oak had this great area underneath the roots to just sit. Ant lions lived there! So cool. Brian and I played with them for a while. They're these little bugs that make this depression in the sand and wait for a creature to slip in. Then, they gobble them up!!!



I'm not sure where this goes actually, but visitors aren't allowed in there. It's behind the cloister walls. It's lovely though.
