Iona and the Abbey

Iona is lovely.

I walked and spent time restoring order which was needed for my sanity – e.g. laundry etc.

Iona is, indeed, a very special place and the Abbey was stunning. Paul went to a morning service and I joined him for an evening one which was very special for me. Although the Abbey was in ruins and has been rebuilt, the atmosphere is still very much there and the Iona Community is modern monastic, bringing fresh perspectives to the Anglican/Episcopelian/Church of England church. The words of their hymns were modern and meaningful and the tunes easily learned – while also lovely. I was tempted to buy their hymn book! Hard to believe but true – but it was large and heavy and I am extremely cautious what I buy and therefore have to carry.
