We’ve spent 2 days in Florida. We’re staying four nights in Daytona across from the big race track. It’s relatively close to my parents’ home (30 minute drive). They can’t house us and so we’re staying at a clean, cheap motel on the main highway. On Sunday, we’ll pack up and move in to a Bed & Breakfast that is only 2 miles from my parents. Because we’ll end up staying there for 8 nights, the British owner has given us a nice discount and it will only be $60 a night (plus tax) which is a great deal and save us the commute. Thanks a lot mate!
Today we stopped in at the Daytona Flea Market. The boys weren’t sure what to expect and I think we enjoyed it. We ended up buying…yeah…you guessed it…used books. It’s gotta be some sort of mental illness…or maybe we’re just normal missionaries with a 10,000 book library. OK…it could be both. We also picked up two yummy loaves of homemade bread baked by a nice Colombian baker. We enjoyed trying to keep up with his rapid Spanish. We also purchased a bag of Indian River navel oranges, some fresh squash (which Beth fried this evening), and a cheap shoe organizer (because Beth’s shoes back home have an organizational deficiency…trust me on this…we’ve tested them). We just barely passed on a large skull and crossbones flag that read: “Until Morale Improves — The Beatings Will Continue.”
We picked up some Thanksgiving supplies at a nearby Sam’s Club and then spent some time at my folks’ house. We’re working on a long list of projects at their house but wanted to break that up today a little bit. One other diversion we enjoyed was a trip to the nearby wildlife refuge at Lake Woodruff and walked a mile or so and took a few photos that might be worth sharing.
Tomorrow…we deep clean the kitchen. Pray for us. 🙂
