After breakfast, we joined Ernie and Pam for a ride out to the Spit, where we completed arrangements for our fishing trip. We shopped in the Inua store and went to Two Sisters for a delicious lunch. After changing into our uniform, we got to the Visitor’s Center in time for Ernie and Pam to view the videos and then the exhibits. The birding tour was completely full and the group was loads of fun. Even though it rained, we saw many of birds! Afterwards, we cleaned up, and Ernie and Pam finished the exhibits.
Dinner was grilled burgers on the great bread that Pam & Ernie had brought from the Moose is Loose bakery. We washed dishes and played Farkle, followed by peach/blackberry cobbler. It was been a great day.
