Two lovely days at the beach

Upon finishing "business time" during my recent trip to Florida at the FOCUS 11 conference, I immediately packed my things and made a mad dash for our condo at New Smyrna beach. The time there was spent dining with the friars on Friday night (Robert, Seraphin, Eugene, Pat Q., and Emile), walking on the beach, and melting into one of the very comfortable lazy boys during two days of R&R. After dinner on Friday night, Robert and I smoked a bit of apple flavored tobacco from his huca turkish water pipe and pondered how good it is to have a place like this to retreat to from time to time - it is good indeed to have brothers...and to spend time with them at the beach ;) Attached to this post is a picture of a turtle that Robert and I ran into during our Friday morning walk.
