February 21st - Some went canoeing ....

After church, Ashley joined us for breakfast at Pop's Restaurant, Beverly bought her a nice necklace to go with her cross necklace made by the cathedral pewtersmiths, and then Doug took her back to her home.

The group split up for our free afternoon of activities.

Beverly, Brad, Susan, Cindy and Sheila ...heading out on a canoeing adventure

Our tour guide, Feliz, was very knowledgeable about the area since he has lived here his entire life. The sounds and sights were awe inspiring and it was a true delight to see the more picturesque sights of this beautiful country. The natural setting of the Macal river was in sharp contrast with the dismal downtown that was only a two minute walk away from where we put our canoe's in.

After the hour+ canoe ride, we hiked for 30+ minutes to a little waterfall where we able to cool off before the trek back.
