Spring at the Monastery

My wife is on spring break this week, and so today she visited the Monastery of the Holy Spirit with her new camera in hand. Here are just a few of her photographs from the day’s adventure:

    I couldn’t help it – I had to “borrow” the gecko for my blog! (with credit and a link back, of course)

    Gorgeous photos, what a lucky person she is to have spent time in such a place. The gecko and Mary was my favorite!
