Ocean Springs to Biloxi -- on foot!!

Yes, this morning Diane and I decided to make the walk from Ocean Springs to Biloxi courtesy of the brand new bridge that now has all 6 lanes open -- complete with a walking path all the way across! One lap is 2 miles and needless to say we realized that the second 2 miles was a bit longer than the first -- absolutely nothing to do with our ages either!!! It was an amazing view and with the winds at near 30 mph we looked so lovely when we arrived back to earth! But -- we did prove to the workers on the path that we could (and did) make it!
Meanwhile our California team are working away at Ms Darlene's. Her ceramic tile is incredible and they are doing a fantastic job. Some of them are remembering that on their last trip they were installing tile in Rosemary's house. God was setting them up for this job as they now know exactly what needs to be done. By this afternoon they will start the grouting process which tells you they are moving at a great speed along with great skill. They have also managed to remove all the old broken brick on the outside of her home. That was not an easy task but they got it done.
They have some new faces with them this trip and it's always wonderful for Monty and I to get new family. As with each team, we just wish they could stay longer than a week.
Speaking of which -- Diane will be leaving us (again) tomorrow morning. I can't believe over 3 weeks have gone by and once again don't know what I will do without her here! As she told me, "I always come back" but it still hurts to see her go. Please cover her with your prayers as the weather looks as though it could bring some challenges into her travel.
Until next time . . . Susan and Monty
