Today was busier at the Visitor’s Center, including some wonderful conversations with folks from Greenville, IL, and a delightful couple from Belgium, who had some wonderful experiences and photographs. It was so busy, that I could hardly get anything read!

Dinner was grilled pork steak and boiled/browned potatoes/garlic/onion. It is a lovely evening, so we enjoyed our trip to the Spit, spotting a Kittlitz’s Murrelet at Land’s End.
