Home for a Few Days

We saw this ship crossing the bay during our lunch on Saturday... quite impressive on the water.

This is the beach at Sand Cove. The water was cool in spite of the hot sun of the day. There must have been a hundred sand dollars down near the water line... maybe it could be called Money Beach?




A lot has happened in the past ten days, most of which can be condensed into working on trails on Marshall Island. Sometimes the crew of seven works together to saw and clear blown down trees, and sometimes we split into a couple of groups to work in different areas of the island maintaining trails. Either way, there's a lot of physical labor and team camaraderie involved. We start our days at 7:00am and finish at 4:30pm, exhausted but happy that we've done good work. Evenings are spent doing chores like cooking, pumping drinking water, or cleaning up after dinner. It's nice to be home, however, to relax and catch up with Richard, friends and family.

you are developing some really great art skills, in addition to the huge set of skills you already have. Maybe someday you can publish all these sketches!
