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 ( ;

Kayaking it

We really lucked out to go kayaking on this trip while we were staying at Davy Crockett State Park, TN. So you know ... I have yet to fall out of my kayak .... KNOCK ON WOOD ... knock on your head ...whatever!! My hubby this kayaking trip slipped once going into this kayak right off the bat and then the kayaking completely flipped over ...it was a real COLD adventure ...fun but so so cold. & our camping friends ...who don't go kayaking often were wanting to help the hubby but I had it under control ...I had water come up and over the kayak ... I am guessing that would be a good reason to have a skirt on your kayak. Wonder if I could do that on my kind of kayak? Not sure ...but it was so so cold. We made it back all in one piece. 
Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you did enjoy your visit. Thank you for your comments and friendship. ENJOY YOUR DAY!! Be Well & Be Blessed!! Beth ( :

So many bikes, so many unique ones to see and just drool over. Are you a bike fan? If you can remember your childhood, what was the must have bike of that year, I bet it is here in mint condition. So fun!! Harley Davidson made bikes, not just Harleys??! Who knew? So many creators, just so so much history. Are you a history buff, I don't remember all these dates, maybe you could or can? Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Take Care!!! Beth ( ;
