The Rosses planned an activity this morning for all of us that I think will become a mainstay in future reunions. Everyone went over to the church for some basketball and volleyball. I think these guys would have stayed all day had we let them, but we had other things to do too!
The Rosses know some people that live right on the water. They own some sea kayaks and graciously let us come over and use them. They were really nice ones and although it was a bit windy, everyone had a good time paddling around. We are having some really great weather. I guess it hasn't been a really warm summer up until recently. We are loving it! It has been green, lush, and sunny for us.

Everyone had a great time and we brought home a lot of sand dollars. It was a really great way to enjoy the ocean. OK, I have to post this next pic because this is the coolest thing about our giant camper shell. It has an outside hose to get sand off your feet before you get back in the truck! ;)
It was such a picturesque place and with the sun going down, it almost looks like we are on a fake background! But it is all real and just that pretty! :)

John wanted a pic of the two of us, and after almost falling into the ocean, we still couldn't get one with both of us looking and our eyes open. Silly.
We worked so hard to get those pics that we decided to reward ourselves with a trip to Mora's, an ice cream shop on the island. It was yummy!
