As you know we are now closed as a community. The monastery is now up for sale!
Despite all this doom and gloom over the last year, we have had some good times including last spring with a duck and her 14 ducklings even though only 12 survived. Well, this year the ducks are back. Yes, mom and dad are here and this morning there were 4 ducks in the courtyard again. I await to see what happens and hope mom has another little brood. So far it is wet, windy and cold but she’s a touch cookie and will do ok.
