Day 224 and The States
"The overseer replied, “She is the Moabite who came back from Moab with Naomi. She said, ‘Please let me glean and gather among the sheaves behind the harvesters.’ She came into the field and has remained here from morning till now, except for a short rest in the shelter.” Ruth 2:6-7
I like this because it does not just say who she is, but why she is there. A lot of times in this day and age, we have to ask multiple questions to get the answer we are really looking for.
Our trip to the States was awesome! We are planning a trip back there, mainly to Seattle. We did a Duck tour, which as I said before was part on land and part in the water... the guide was really funny. He had a different hat for each phase of the tour, told jokes, had us wave our hands in the air, scream, sing... we saw the floating house from "sleepless in Seattle" saw a lot of house boats and a business that was actually a boat. We went shopping (i bought the least with only boots, a mug and a true love waits ring) We went out for dinner, saw the market, I saw a huge Anatolian shepherd. The first night at the cabin, we did a face mask and watched "Apocalypse Now" it was more boring than I remembered. The second day, we actually drove to Seattle, toured, shopped, drove back and went to bed. Then on Sunday we went to the Seattle Outlet mall in Everett, then drove home. On the way to the States, the border crossing was really funny cause we had an Australian, a German, a New Zealander and a Canadian. We had to get out an go in to the building so they could get ESTA's. Coming back was easy.
Thats about all I can think of, any questions? More pics will be on facebook later.
