Today is Saturday and it was a day to travel with all the Pastors and wives and go to 100 Island State Park. It was a nice break from all the activities this week. The boat ride was in a narrow boat that had bamboo outriggers on its sides. It had a diesel engine that was very loud. The whole experience was remminance of the African Queen as we were bounding up and down with the waves. Once on the Governor's Island we had to jump off on to the sandy beach. After a lunch we climbed the 100 steps to the top over look. Now was the time to register for the zip line. Dave and I we the first to go. Dave first and then myself all appointed in snorkel mask and fins. Time to fly in the sky for 1800 feet of fun. I chose to do some snorkeling and swim back to the beach. After that a little cave exploring and the the boat ride back . On the way we came upon a stranded boat and our driver and 1st mate promptly secured a line with just a small amount of excitement as the boat colided briefly. Half way back our boat ran out of fuel. The disabled boat fortunately had extra fuel. Off again towards shore and a uneventful double boat docking. A little shopping and a 2 hour ride back to the hotel to pick up our recovering teammate. Pizza was our dinner choice. First Shakey's, a blast from the past. However they closed at 8 PM on Saturday night. Second choice was Yellow Cab Pizza. Not to bad, good meats, lite on the sauce though. Back to the hotel. And of course a little adjusting of half a dozen family members of our hosts that were not with us earlier. One more day left and a long flight home. Look for pictures on Facebook!
