Crystal Castle.... a celebration

December last year found me on the other side of Australia, being the east coast, 
in northern New South Wales with one of my dearest friends. 
I was there to celebrate her birthday along with our friendship that has travelled with us from childhood.

On a glorious warm wet day,
we visited  Crystal Castle..... a magical place to be.

I love you

are the monks creating a stupa out of the butter? i've never seen that before. wow.

I could certainly do with some of the calm that comes from that beautiful place. Serenity!

Thank you for your kind and wise words you left on my "house" post.

So serene--love the bamboo & the Dalai Lama's quotation.
Did your feathered friend enjoy your breakfast?

they must have done it up in the last five years..

I used to love walking the labyrinth, and took several courses there when I lived up that way.

lovely views from the cafe.

Wowzer!!!Looks like my kind of place!!

And I have always loved that quote that you have at the beginning.

Wish I had a place like that - maybe I'll create one myself!
