A restful rainy day and good conversation with Deacons Paul and Antoinette Krieg, administrators of Casa Cares.
A day of travel through the wine country of Tuscany on our way to Sienna. Saw Sienna’s striking colors and contrasts on a day with clouds skittering through the air. Finished the day at San Gimignano as the skies covered over with grey and the towers stood mute.
A restful day at Waldensian retreat center, Casa Cares, and short day trip to Greve-in-Chianti. Greve was largely shuttered up! (A down season for tourists). The olive grove and the sunset were life-giving.
Morning in the food markets of Bologna. Travel in our rented Fiat 500 across the Apennine mountain range. Glorious vistas culminating in our arrival at Waldensian retreat center, Casa Cares in Tuscany.
Powerful day at Merindol, site where a village of Waldensians / Protestants, were sent through a faux door (looks like a window in the photo) to their death down a cliff. One of many villages that suffered for their conscience. Loumarin was also visited by Waldensians before the Reformation. Baux-de-Provence is .. well .. beaux.
Glorious day in Nice, France, of clouds bursting sun, walk on the promenade, Chagall museum and a ride along the Côte d’Azur by rail. – New Chagall and Coastline Photos!
Arrived in a delightful bed and breakfast in Aze. Took a look around Taize to prepare for worship the next day.
New easier navigation structure and photos being added regularly. (Christmas Eve with family in Virginia.)
Wonderful full day of fox hunt, panoramic views, and family time.
Arrival at sister-in-law Ann’s home in Virginia.
Saint Lucia is remembered as a child walks with a crown aflame amongst the people. All the world is aflame, we have but to notice.
Chapel at SFTS and Advent Preparations.
