John took the truck for an oil change, while I did laundry, trying to get everything done and ready for the long trip home. After yesterday’s windy, stormy weather, we saw an amazingly stunning double rainbow this morning – what an incredible affirmation of God’s promises.

The afternoon on the Spit was delightful, sunshine and warm, and several bird species to identify – mostly gulls in juvenile or non-breeding plumage. Most all of the birds have molted just recently, and they are absolutely beautiful!

Dinner was at Boardwalk Fish-n-Chips with Vonda, Byron, Max, and Rachel – it was lots of fun to share, and the food was great as well!
