Robertsport Weekend

While Max was home for Spring Break, we enjoyed a weekend in Robertsport. It's about 2 hours away by car, and has a great beach. Yes, we know we live on the beach. But it was nice to be out of town, and the beach in R'port was way cleaner than our beach. We stayed at the "tent resort" pictured below - the tents are heavy canvas and set up on a platform. They are furnished with two double beds and some chairs, and a fan. We slept great.
Here's the group that went- since we had 4 beds (2 tents) reserved, each of the boys brought a friend. They spent hours body-boarding and body surfing. In fact, most of them were in pain from chafing by the end of the trip.

We drove through Robertsport on the way out. It's really just a little town, with this pretty big hill towering over it. Rick thought this tree up on the hill was pretty amazing.
There are more pictures on Rick's camera, so maybe he'll add a few. It was a really nice weekend, and not too long a trip- it could easily be a day trip now that the roads are so good.

Max is on his way back to school in Senegal tonight- it really felt like a short break (spring break always does, it's only 2 weeks). He's doing really well in school in all respects- academically and socially. I'm (Debbie) going to go for a visit in about a month, to see the school play and for Max's baptism.

May God bless your celebration of his Kingship (Palm Sunday), his Sacrifice (Good Friday) and his Victory (Resurrection Sunday!) -- Debbie
