In my last post, I mentioned that I’m behind on posting blog-able events. Here is an attempt at catching up – at least a bit!
A couple of weeks ago, my roomies and I woke up early (well, for a Saturday, at least), packed up a cooler full of lunch, jackets, bocci ball, and a frisbee and hit the road. Destination: Fort Casey. One roomie had never been there, and the other hadn’t been in years, so we decided that for and end-of-the-year celebration/quality time session, we just had to go! And of course, copious amounts of photos were taken.
As soon as we were ready, we hopped in my car and thus begins our epic adventure.
Our first stop? The ferry.
After exploring for a bit, we went to a particular part of the bunker that has AMAZING acoustics. It makes even the smallest voice sound big – so imagine four voices…in harmony! We sang as many songs as we could remember — and even had a passerby add his bass voice to our rendition of Amazing Grace. Proof that you don’t always have to be in a church service to worship God!
But all that singing sure did make us hungry…
But Marisa and I had a surprise. We decided that our roomies are SO great that they needed some awards. So we put our heads together and invented some pretty snazzy certificates.
And here is what happens when you’re laughing hysterically and a sudden gust of wind comes up…and you’re STILL laughing hysterically as you dive for the awards shouting, “SAVE THE CERTIFICATES!!!!!!!” I love these girls.
After lunch, comical games of frisbee, and many many rounds of bocci, we decided to take a walk to explore another set of bunkers.
We saw this little feller along the way.
After thoroughly creeping ourselves out/getting adrenaline rushes in the depths of the bunkers, we decided to mosey on back to the main part of the fort for more singing and some beach time.
But what an excellent day it was. I can think of few things better than spending the day with wonderful, Godly women, exploring, adventuring, sharing a meal, and rejoicing in the God-painted beauty of the creation and people around us.
