Our ticket for the museum was for two days so we headed back to see the rest of the exhibits and pick up my bead which was now sufficiently annealed.  The museum offers tours led by docents so we took one of those.  It was to have been a one hour tour, but the docent really warmed to his topics so it actually ran closer to two hours.  He had lots of back stories for the exhibits so even the ones that we had already seen yesterday were more interesting with the extra information. 

For example, I would have thought that this was a tapestry or painting but actually it is a micro-mosaic. The artist used tiny, tiny little pieces to make this picture which looks just like a painting, only a little bumpier.   

We also watched a few more people doing glass work.  The museum wasn't nearly as crowded today as it was yesterday. 

On the way home we went to Walmart (naturally) to pick up a few groceries and to Home Depot to use their free wifi and also to look at bathroom sinks.  A while ago Bob opened the medicine cabinet after a particularly bumpy trip and his after-shave fell out and put a chip in our sink.  We decided to worry about it when we get home, rather than try to do a sink install with limited tools. 

After leaving Walmart Bob set the GPS for our camping spot, but instead of choosing our current one he mistakenly chose the saved spot from Littleton MA.  We went a ways east before we caught on so we had the scenic trip home.  These GPS's have one fatal flaw - they depend on a human programming them!
