The Monastry

Today we decided to go take a break and relax at the Monastry. You know, restoration. And where better to do so than some where remote, beautiful and silent? It was a stunning day, besides the raging winds and icy temperature (snow is expected just outside Grahamstown this weekend) nothing that couldn't be solved with a couple of blankets though, and we spoilt ourselves with cream cheese and crackers. It was retreat in every meaning of the word. The monastry was set up a few years back by 5 monks who came out from the US. We had the pleasure of meeting 2 of them today.
