We dipped our toes in the Atlantic ocean and have officially travelled from coast to coast.
We had a delicious homestyle breakfast at a small restaurant overlooking the bay with our host family. I don’t know what I would do if there were such places within walking distance of my home – the rationalizations I would devise to eat there all the time would be worthy of prizes for creativity.
Before leaving we learned from our host Candone about the her ceramic technique, Raku. She has such intricately beautiful pieces and teaches the technique all over the world. We appreciated the time she took to satiate our curiosity and answer our questions. Our afternoon was spent on the road continuing toward Indiana it’s arctic weather (stay warm friends).
There has been nothing but joy associated with all the friends we have met along our way. Sadly today we learned that we have lost a dear friend of ours back in Franklin. In addition to being our friend, Leona was a grandparent to our children. When our children’s grandparents could not make grandparents day at school- they asked Leona, when Brenna arrived home from school to an empty house one day – she called Leona, when Scarlet was an infant Leona was her first babysitter. The wisdom and leadership Leona demonstrated at Hopewell church is simply an irrecoverable loss for the membership. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family left to celebrate her life, husband Lester, daughter Leslie, son Fred and her beloved grandchildren: Meagan, Jacob, Erin and Lexi.
John 14:3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
