Stopped for lunch at the Russian River.
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.
From Russia to Ukraine: the entrance to Mt. Tabor Ukrainian Catholic Monastery. 90_5FBC8B5A2219AC68178A42E88820749B.jpg 90_5FBD494C2219AC68176169040A6D86E7.jpg 90_5FBDD2B32219AC681708070CF18AD11A.jpg 90_5FBE58412219AC681755284473649559.jpg
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.
