David and Rachel lent us their cute little Mini to go to church this morning. They went for long runs while we drove up to the LDS church in Washington, North Carolina (not to be confused with the nation's capital).

They had a branch there, but a building bigger than our ward building in Eldersburg. Needless to say, we were a little jealous. They were a nice group and we enjoyed meeting a few of them before and after church. They had a couple of missionaries, also and we sat next to one of their investigators.

After church David cooked up his famous Eggs a la Garbanza with Hollandaise sauce. It was delicious. It reminded me of a healthy version of Dad's biscuits and gravy!

We tried out David and Rachael's two person kayak and enjoyed it. We mostly took a lazy ride down the creek and then went just a little way down the river back to their pier (with the flag in the back).

Ed took the Sunfish out for one last spin, which was lots of fun because there was a good, stiff breeze. It was also bad, because it caused him to capsize the boat and he lost a contact lens in the water. He's going to have a fuzzy next several days wearing his glasses!

I was very reluctant to try out the Sunfish, because of my problem with motion sickness, but David told me he would take me out and if we stayed close to shore I could abandon ship at any time. Surprisingly, I loved it and had no problems. I was one with the boat! I got to take the tiller while David managed the sail. Sailing is interesting; they've explained to me how it works, but just like airplane flight, it seems a little mysterious.

We finished the day with a beet and quinoa dinner--delicious and different, and also vegan! David and Rachael have really gone out of their way to show us a good time. I'm sure with the rave reviews about them here in my blog they're going to get too many booking requests and will have to turn the rest of you away!
