When we got back to the resort we sat down for a nice dinner, and then got ready to host "coffee time" at our cabin. We had the whole gang over for ice cream sundaes, and again enjoyed chatting and sharing our stories. Everyone is gone now, and the cabin is quiet and clean.

The forecast for tomorrow is rain, so it looks like it might have to be a Walker day!
