Yes, vacation is over. Rocky start...too many expections and really lousy weather, but we made the best of it, and as usual - wanted to stay longer.

Lot's to write about, and digest but here is a sunset from last night, and the beautiful weather today (WHY is the most beautiful weather on the day that you leave? )

One funny story. On the ferry ride over there was a family with 3 kids, all wanted to have a turn at one of those coin operated fixed binoculars. The littlest one was helped by the oldest one and he looked into the binoculars and saw the moon. He yelled out loud with complete joy - "I see the moon and I also see JESUS".

He was completely happy.

His mom had a little chagrined look on her face but we all just grinned at her...and whispered "it's a miracle!"

Oral Roberts made a fortune off that statement.....I'm sure the man did a lot for Tulsa and education, etc. and I don't follow the new generation that just got deposed at all. I remember the days of the 40 foot Jesus and the "God will call me home if I don't raise 3 million dollars".....good times.
