Sunday morning came late for some of us, but Emory, Riley, Jan, and Scott Sr. started the day around sunrise. Emory and Riley explored more of the town during the early morning while Scott Sr. and Jan went on a beautiful bird watching trip! Their guide was able to distinguish between species based on sound alone and entertained and educated his guests for three and a half hours. Scott Sr. and Jan saw 28 different species! Coincidentally, the entire team met in the hotel lobby for breakfast at the same time. From there, we split up into groups again to revisit our favorite shops. Thomas and Trey bought handmade blankets for their dorm rooms at Kent this coming year, while Scott bought a carving of a crab for his brother! Emory, Riley, Scott, and the interns all bought matching pants, as well.
In the afternoon, the team descended to the lake. Emory, Riley, Trey, and Scott tried out some diving boards before Emily and Thomas joined them and Scott Sr. in the water. After drying off, the team eventually set out to find dinner. On the way, we found Dick! He recommended a restaurant to us and joined us for dinner. The group briefly lost Trey in the developing rainstorm, but Scott braved the weather in search of the birthday-boy and they rejoined us just in time for dinner.
Our trip back to Hope Haven went smoothly and only took about two and a half hours. This time, we went the correct way and followed a fully-finished road, bereft of bumps.
