I don’t even know where to start with the AmyG meet-up — of course there is way too much for one post — but I know you want photos so here they are. First things first.
Since both of us might beat the record for coffee consumed per day, what better place to meet?
We had no idea they had a little lending library as you walked in the front door. How appropo. Even a guitar.
The Book Nook ...
At our tiny square table in Boundless Grounds, we talked nonstop for about 2 hours. It wasn't until AmyG got up that I noticed 3 women at a table down the way. They said, "You girls have not stopped visiting since you sat down!" You 'girls.' 🙂
After leaving Boundless Grounds, we drove up the hill. Outside the Benedictine monastery on the hill, we walked down some concrete stairs --- which we discovered were shaped to be the rosary --- and had our picnic lunch on a concrete bench. A canopy of trees kept the few light sprinkles away.
Here's a peek at the inside of the church. We were the only ones there --- well, except for a quiet nun in the pews to the right. We wanted to go up on the altar but thought the nun might not care much for that. Still, we somehow, ACCIDENTALLY, found ourselves up there anyway. 😉
We climbed the spiral staircase of the monastery for a gander at the view. Mist-laden, rolling hills. Spectacular. Time was too too short. I can't believe it was all over so quickly.
