April 25th - Monday - 85 degrees w/ breeze
Lou and I agreed that we would take our walk each morning before breakfast, as it is hard for me to walk and breath when it gets hot in the afternoon, so we were off early this morning.
We are including pictures that we took this morning on our walk. Some of the wild flowers that we found growing are ones that we buy in the nurseries at home each spring. On the way back we just had to stop and watch the water birds. Our Marine neighbors from Ohio told us the small shore birds were called the Ruddy Turnstone. The birds sitting out in the water in the brush are of course, the Great Blue Heron and the smaller one is an immature Cormorant.
We also had to move our RV to a different site, we once again have full hook up and this time we have 50 amp, so we can use both A/C units, and that is good, as it is in the mid 90’s today and is supposed to be the remaining of the week. I have included a view from our bedroom window and one from our door.
I have put away our Easter decorations and put out our shore bird and shell collection for the remainder of our stay here. We haven’t been able to keep our awning out, as the breeze is too strong to allow it to stay out. I guess it hasn’t mattered, as I have spent the day cleaning and Lou has been catching up on his reading of the magazines that Krista had mailed to him.
Lou called his friend Donnie in Pennsylvania and he was delighted that we have decided to stay for the launch and he was tickled with the post card that I had sent to him from the Kennedy Center, it is amazing what little things you can do for some people that please them and make them happy. We promised more pictures.
We both talked to all of our family members yesterday, neither of us sent out Easter cards so took the opportunity to call everyone to wish them a Happy Easter, reached everyone with the exception of Scott, and it was good to have a personal contact with each and everyone of them. Even got to talk to our sisters and brothers which was very special. Was glad to hear that so many of them follow the Blog on a daily basis and knew exactly what we had been doing and that was the exact reason we started posting two years ago and never expected so many folks would travel with us, but welcome the company.
We have several prayer requests, Michelle is returning back to College for her final weeks and will be preparing for her finals, Susie, Preston’s wife, is in the hospital with an abscess in her colon, Spencer will soon be leaving for a tour overseas with the Army, Krista will be visiting a specialist, for her unborn baby, that will be checking the irregular heart beat.
