Benedictine monk relaxing atop wind turbine spotted by drone

Posted: Updated:

PORTSMOUTH, R.I. (AP) - A Benedictine monk who works at a private Rhode Island school has discovered that finding solitude is no easy feat, even 175 feet in the air.
    
Brother Joseph Byron was recently relaxing atop the Portsmouth Abbey School's wind turbine - as he often does - when a drone zoomed in.
    
Video taken by the drone, owned by a Californian on vacation, shows Byron sprawled across the turbine's flat surface, with views of Narragansett Bay in the background. The footage was posted online this week.
    
Byron told the Providence Journal on Thursday he's now hearing from everyone on the planet.
    
He says seeing the drone was a little annoying since he climbs the turbine when he wants to be alone.
    
Byron has been climbing the turbine since its 2006 installation.
