On this Duckling Family Adventure, Momma Duck took seven of her twelve Ducklings to a monastery.
It was a beautiful place,
the solitude of the people who lived here showed in every step they took.
Here they could see how the monks were practicing.
The mere size of the sanctuary made even the tallest of the Ducklings (Duckling Seven)
They saw a creche, very beautifully and meticulously placed.
There were crosses everywhere,
and the presence of God lived in every marble stone, it seemed.
The stained glass was breathtaking. Even the smallest Duckling held still and whispered.
After going as far as they could,
They braved the cold weather, and walked into the gardens.
There were many places where you could stop and pray, or simply sit and listen for God.
A new addition to the abbey was a Monastery Heritage Museum.
On their way to the van, they meet a pigeon bravely protecting his wife and young.
While the rest of the Ducklings walked around the gift shop, Duckling Six watched Duckling Twelve as she ran around.
The Ducklings had a grand time!
But they were all glad to warm themselves in the van, and eat a small snack before heading home.
Blessings! Abigail Joy.
