this weekend graham came up from atlanta for a quick farewell visit. we camped the backcountry at assategue island on maryland's eastern shore. we hiked in about 4 miles (barefoot in the sand!) before setting up camp behind some dunes. very cool. i haven't developed my pictures yet, so here's a picture of one of the feral ponies on the island... contemplating a swim.
two other firsts today... i got stitches! my doctor said i did a great job, which i thought was funny since she did all the work. i have an excellent doctor. also, i'm about to write my first letter of resignation since today is my last day at work. i've been putting it off. i really do love my job, and life in general here in maryland... but africa calls (and by africa, i really mean God)... and THAT is exciting.
don't know how much i'll be blogging the next few days/weeks. i'm headed to perth, australia tomorrow to visit anna... YAY!
