This is an update to a previous post about the Abbey of New Clairveaux in Northern California. The previous post has more information about the abbey.
The monastery has completed the vaulted ceiling for its reconstruction of the Avila chapter house. It is beyond belief. The acoustics are very live.
A closer look at the stone vaulting.
This is an amazing amount of progress since last year, when the arches were supported by medieval-style framing.
Besides the work on the chapter house, nearly everything at the monastery seemed just about the same as last year. I am glad to report the food was a little better this year. I was told the brothers rotate cooking duties and we managed to visit during the right week this time. I hope to visit again next year.
