As we left the Russian River park, this animal seemed to be guarding the restrooms. It only later proved to be on a leash with an owner.

We were greeted by one of the monks, Fr. Damian. We got a wonderful tour, including the dining hall and the church with the painted icons. We learned some interesting facts about the Eastern Rite and about iconography. We were invited to stay for dinner but decided to push on towards Ferndale.
