Abbey of Gethsemani




These shots are right off the gift shop. Such a peaceful area.




this is the front of the offices & gift shop, where they do sell fruitcake, fudge, books all sorts of great must see goodies.



















Welcome to this weeks' "InSPIREd Sunday" hope you will join us. I was so happy to visit this abbey. "Abbey of Gethsemani, 3642 Monks Road, Trappist KY" 502.549.3117 . I am not Catholic, I do enjoy learning as much interesting, educational info, that I can though. For me, I thought "abbey" always meant "nuns" ... I didn't realize it could also mean monks. I did google it ...I am always learning. Thanks!! Please join us at "InSPIREd Sunday". Glad you stopped in today. Hope you are well. Take care. Be Well & Be Blessed. Beth ( ;

(he was telling us that he did have some health issues, no details, but i thought he looked ok?) he was so cool. he was very descriptive and so fun to listen too. the mill had been in his family for years. he was just like a real history book. such a loss. (i just checked my notes we were there Thurs. 8/21) i hope he knew we enjoyed our visit. we told him so. thanked him for his time & explained we love seeing the odd, the different & the usual places throughout the US.
