West Minster Abbey

We had planned on going to the Kilby Children's Festival today but when we arrived we found out it was way to expensive for the 6 of us and upon talking to my friend whom was already there we learned it was not worth it so.......

We followed the road through Harrison Mills and wound up in Mission. We could see a Monastery from the highway so we decided to check it out. It was the Westminster Abbey...

We found some wonderful paths to follow and some amazing photo opportunities!

This was the amazing view of the Fraser River from high up on the Abbey property! Too bad there was so much smog.

This is the view of the bell tower at the monastery from the path we followed to the look out.

One of the Monks at the monastery told Eva she was so colorful that she looked like a bouquet of flowers.

Cole also talked to a Monk and asked him if there was a cemetery. The monk asked him why he was so interested in it and he said it was because that's where the dead people are! The monk then asked him if he prayed for the dead and Cole's response was "sometimes" and then the monk blessed him. We wont tell the monk that Cole has no idea what pray means....

What a beautiful day to visit such a beautiful and peaceful place!
