Can you have a favorite abbey? Sure, why not--after you've been to so many of them, you're authorized to make such claims. ;) So, this is my favorite abbey--Fountains Abbey! It's SOOOOO beautiful! Founded back in 1132, it operated for 400 years--until of course... can you guess? DISSOLUTION! (haha, those from our glorious trip will understand) Thank you King Henry, for such beautiful ruins. ;) Seriously, they really are quite beautiful.
And HUGE--way to make me feel short again. :P
This was actually pretty cool--it's a Green Man on one side, and an angel on the other. Loved it.
And such a beautiful day--can't beat that. <3
