On Saturday we went to Taga beach with a few of the young kids living on Tinian. They enjoy the water like most kids, and put me to shame as they do flips off the rocks!
Today the color of the water was unusually brilliant.
This house is almost ready to move-in--just a few more odds and ends!
I finally made it back home to Tinian. It is good to be back! So much has happened while I was in Utah working on 'the house Terri built' (I have provided pictures of the 'house Terri built' for those who wonder what it looks like...keep in mind that Terri built the entire house, with the exception of the concrete foundation and the brick/stucco work. Every piece of wood, every wire in the electrical system, every copper pipe for the water and heating system, etc., was put there by Terri, with some help from her family, of course!). Even though I saw her do it, it is hard to believe when you look at it...
The trip was mostly a success. We fixed and upgraded the home, and got new renters, as well as a new management company (that will hopefully do a better job 'maintaining' the house than the last company did). And I got to spend time with my father (now in his 80's), and my daughter Elizabeth (the one who visited Tinian and took pictures--more on that later); and time with my son Seth, his wife Meg, and my new grandson Joshua. Seth help me fix up the house--thank heaven he was there to help, as I would never have made it!My apologies to many in Utah that I was not able to visit while I was there! I had planned to see a number of people while in Utah, but the work on the house took way longer than I had expected, and so I was not able to see very many people.
