Your title is just right and so is JM.

It's so tranquil - excellent photos both. You've had another week of amazing posts. I like how you capture the light on the buildings and find interesting/colorful subjects (pipes, mask,...)

There is a Benedictine abbey in my home town in Brittany.
A perfect place for a retreat.
