Monday is Preparation Day.

Monday is preparation day (a day to do laundry, get groceries, rest) so we took some time to see the area. Here we are on our hike up to Charlotte Falls: Standing beside us in red is little Patience, then Elder and Sister Neves, Elder Jones (Sister Jones is taking the picture) Elder Bird, Elder Gunderson, Sister and Elder Patterson.
This bamboo bridge was fun to cross.  
It was really misty and the falls were loud. We stayed there for a while and enjoyed the view.

Hang on, President!  He really loved this little bridge and had to pretend he was hanging on for dear life!

It was really beautiful there.  We had a "guide" who met us as we drove into the hiking area.  The little girl in red, Patience, was with us the whole way.  She held my hand and sang.  She was excited to see herself in the camera after we'd take a picture.

That evening we went to dinner with the Senior Couples at a place called "Roys".  Some of us had barracuda and rice.  We haven't eaten barracuda before.  It was very light and delicious.  
Roy's had our tables outside near the beach. The weather was perfect with a gentle breeze.  It was a beautiful sunset and a wonderful day with our fellow servants.  We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves all day.

Wow I love reading/seeing everything! I'm so glad you have this blog! Those plants are so cool! And that little girl is cute- was she the guide's daughter or something? LOL! I was confused about who she was and why she followed you the whole way! Miss you guys!

I don't think I'd be as comfortable as he was.
I'm glad things are going well for you two.
