We were up early and on our way to drive Shoveler Pond for one last time, or perhaps we will get one more time before we have to leave. It was a busy day at the VC, as inventory need work and there was a group of pre-school kids who came for a field trip.
When we arrived home, we worked a little more on packing – can’t do too much at one time! Dinner was left-overs and we joined the group at the fire pit.
