Monday and time to move on!


Grand Tetons

The church service was seriously awesome, and the chapel was overflowing...again.  Good thing we got there early.  The guest priest from Charlotte, NC, was truly inspiring, incorporating a fly-fishing lesson (complete with pole!) into his homily, and how that technique relates to how we handle life.  Great guy!  And we saw a large herd of buffalo en route to the chapel.  It was the beginning of a good day.

After the service, we drove down to Jackson Hole and had a delightful lunch, splitting a bowl of shrimp bisque and a salmon salad.  Yummy for the tummy.  And a beer…that made us sleepy…so we went back to the coach for a nap.  Hey, we’ve had a busy two days, so we deserved a nap.

A visit to Jackson Lodge for another beer and enjoyment of the scenery, and a cruise through the park followed.  We checked out a spot on the Snake River just outside Yellowstone where we stayed a few years ago that is now back open, so that is where we are heading this morning to spend one night there.  We will tour Yellowstone on the southern end, and then move on up north of it for a thorough visit up in the western end.  Yellowstone is a large park!

On our drive back to the coach, we spied a couple of deer and two large elk herds.  The above photo was taken just after we entered Moran Junction.  Late afternoon is not the best time for photos, but it was when we were there.  Period.

That’s life from the road for today.  Have yourselves a ginger peachy day.  We sure will!

I'm glad you had a blessed Sunday. I'm also glad you got to attend church from the inside of the church this time. Sounds like a great service too.

Have a fabulous day honey. Big hugs to you and tons of scritches to the babies. :)
