A Hug from the Lord

Saturday was special.
We were given the afternoon to spend with this special couple. Grant and Alana were some of our small group leaders during our time in Missouri.

After a nice lunch we drove to Blue Springs to see the manatees.
The manatees come into the warmer spring waters during the winter months.
See the gray blobs on the far side of the springs? Those are the manatees. I was a little disappointed that they weren't closer for Grant and Alana to see them better for the first time. Sometimes they are so close and right under the walkways! 

It was still a lovely afternoon and we enjoyed our visit so much.

We have seen them up close at Blue Springs - they are really neat to observe.

Sounds like a special day.
Time with dear friends.

We have been treated to manatee watching. It is really fun. They are interesting creatures.
