Mepkin Abbey (Wednesday, January 8, 2014)

We went to Mepkin Abbey today, a monastery in Moncks Corner, SC. It was formerly a plantation and was then owned by Henry Luce and Clare Booth Luce who later donated it to the Trappist monks. The huge old oak trees, with their Spanish moss, are beautiful. We saw the small cemetery where the original owners and the Luces are buried and walked through a labyrinth.


Matt and the mechanic re-aligned everything with the fixed coupling but there is still some vibrating and rattling. The mechanic seems to be stumped.
