So the last day with the coworkers before vacation went well…

Indeed, I a fun time was had by all at our all-staff retreat. One of the fun parts of it is that I maintained an open-Kodak policy. Anyone who wanted to fire off some photos on my camera was welcome to do so, and so we had a number of photographers over the course of the day. We had a catered lunch together, we hung out and socialized a bit, and we went on a three-mile-or-so hike. Check it out…

A number of us, including myself, played a few hands of Spades out on the deck.

The location we were hiking to was an historic cemetery, dating from the late 18th and early 19th centuries.

At the historic cemetery, at the end of our hike route. We are a spirited bunch, no?

Random for-sale sign that we encountered on the hike. I found this amusing considering exactly how far off the beaten path this location was.

So there you are. A fun time was had by all. I’m just glad I didn’t wash the car prior to going, because I had no idea I’d be driving along a gravel road to get where we were going…

And tomorrow… the beach!

Web site: Unrelated, but it's funny: "IDK, my BFF Jill."

Song: The anticipation of hearing ocean waves very soon...

Quote: So now all I have to do is pack my stuff up. Not just clothes, but also whatever electronic equipment I'm planning to take, the batteries for that electronic equipment, and the chargers for said equipment.
