Today was a day for rest. We were tired from the weekend and from working when we got back, so we just spent the morning working on bills, plans for going home, and phone calls. After lunch, we did a little banking, dropped off the last of our Fish & Wildlife books, and enjoyed a little time birding on the South Jetty. We saw quite a few birds and enjoyed identifying them in their new fall plumage.

Dinner was simply spaghetti with garlic bread. After a walk around the loops with Bill & Diana, we relaxed for the evening.
