On Saturday, after we dropped my dad and stepmom at the airport, we drove down to St. Augustine to meet Albert's coworkers for lunch. We weren't feeling overly social, since we were still reeling from the news of Bea's death, but the plans had already been made and we didn't want to be rude and cancel.
The Outback Crab Shack restaurant was very casual. It's located on the St. John's river and serves great seafood. We split an enormous sampler platter of grilled fish, shrimp and scallops, fillet steaks, crabcakes, and grilled vegetables. Awesome.
Sunday morning we enjoyed attending the meeting. We found it amusing that the brother giving the talk was the same local brother who had given it the last time we visited this congregation. Weird that we remember that, huh? We only remember because that brother and his family had taken us to lunch last time we were here. This time we didn't go out to lunch with anyone, but it did take us an hour after the meeting to leave, because we got to talking to so many fine people. We've found that to be true at every congregation we've visited. We always end up closing down the place. Sunday our impetus to leave was the fact that the Spanish congregation was arriving for their meeting so we had to vacate the parking space. It's always so uplifting to meet the new brothers and sisters.
So yesterday and today have been fairly non-eventful. Albert has been working, and I've been catching up on this blog! I'm also exhausted from the days we took off to goof off with my parents. So we're looking forward to some fishing and relaxation by a lake tomorrow at our first stop on the way to Houston. We'll keep you posted!
