Saint John’s Abbey
After the ice-fishing, Rob and I went to Saint John’s Abbey, a Benedictine monastery which has really interesting architecture. It was built in during the period when everyone was doing very modern, minimilist structures, which by and large look like concrete blocks. This doesn’t. It is clean and massive.
Rob’s mom says that he likes it because it is “masculine.”
Here’s a shot of the interior balcony supports. You have no sense of scale from this photo.
Once again, we came home to the smell of Shawna’s cooking. Laura came down from Duluth so the dinner table was quite full.
