Good Friday Fun


A few of us went to Holy Cross for Good Friday Services today. They had a good turn out and everyone was enjoying themselves, especially the kids. They got to sing the songs they had been practicing all week during the service. Afterwards they got busy making crafts and having story time. The volunteer group from Raleigh is sure helped make these kids Easter vacation a good one.

It was a nice day walking to and from the school, we went part way on town and part way on the beach, getting a total of 7027 steps in or 1.99 miles. We did not get as much aerobic activity in today (15 min and 1620 aerobic steps) because we were stopping and starting to look at stuff along the way. We were glad to find island perk open on the way home, most places are closed down here as this is one of the biggest holiday’s. people are not even aloud to sell liquor before 6 pm at night on Good Friday.

Tonight we are going to drop by Wet Willies with Carole, Dick and the gang. They have blues music and Carol said it is pretty good. Drummer Jim has been telling us we should come sometime.
