Picnic with farmers’ market veggies and cheese from a local monastery

Sean being adorable, all “ministry of silly walks” at the local monastery

Our local farmers market right around the corner from our house

Back to the abbey where we bought our cheese…you can also buy eggs, candies, jams, etc. – all produced by the monks at the abbey.

Fontgombault Abbey, founded in 1091, is on the way to Le Blanc from where we live. They sell Tomme cheese – velvety with a hazelnut flavor.

We always stop at the abbey, park under a tree and have picnics. It’s such a quiet, healing spot. It reminds me of my pilgrimage and the many monasteries who hosted me and other weary pilgrims for a night, for a meal…

“A monastery is a house of prayer where men live and work searching for god in the silence.”
