I am now back from retreat, all refreshed and spiritual! We enjoyed a mixture of worship with group discussion, informal discussion and free time, a lunch out on Saturday evening and a walk on Sunday afternoon.Two of the people I already knew and thought would be there didn't turn up (are they trying to tell me something...) but it was lovely to reconnect with one or two others and meet new folk. Below are a few pictures of some of the places we visited.
Buckfast Abbey - photo taken on a visit on Saturday afternoon.
Some pictures from the gardens above. There were rose and lavender gardens and a sensual garden where you could smell the herbs and touch the plants, but not the monkshood ( or wolfbane) which is poisonous!
On Sunday afternoon we wandered on the moors, which worked up a good appetite for Sunday lunch. Some more here on flckr.
