Last Day ...

During our last full day together - we lazily came to breakfast and a list of everyone's names on a sheet of paper. The question was asked of each one, "What is one thing you want to do on our last day together?"

~ lay in the hammock
~ go to the beach
~ see the sunset
~ spend time together

The answers were sweet and we spent our energy making them reality during our day. Plus, I stayed in my jammies all day and took a nap - divine! You'd never know by these pix that it was grey and rainy all morning - what a gift to have the sun come out for the rest of the day!

I don't have pictures of the hammock - but here are the other things mentioned. And, yes, I have had fun playing with my new camera and the many settings :)
