As usual, the project activities kept us busy enough that we didn’t have a lot of time for other activities, but we found enough diversions to stay refreshed. We celebrated Dave’s birthday in the middle of the project, which came with – what else? – a chocolate on chocolate cake. With less than a minute’s notice, we managed to scramble outside to watch a SpaceX launch from the church parking lot just after sunset. We had a few shared (mostly takeout) dinners with Pat and Fred and Adam. And we took a night to drive through St. Augustine’s Festival of Lights shortly before their display was to end. And we managed to get in a few Whit’s ice cream treats during our travels around town.
This guy was unperturbed by Cathy’s close approach to the bridge railing on which he was resting. At his leisure, he flew away after posing for a few pictures.
