We ended the day with flashes of lightning, followed by thunder and rain–a proper Santa Elena conclusion for “our” 4th of July. 



The morning greeted us with a spirited display of bows, necklaces, napkins and a happy 4th of July—given to us by our own keeper of celebrations, Pam Cromer. 



We left for school with much trepidation–we had decided to try an experiment, advertising time to practice English today and Friday morning to anyone in the community. School is out for a vacation, so we weren’t sure how many, who or when people might show up. Thanks to Pam–who stood by the gate “pimping”—and a number of people who were bringing their children for art and science lessons, we ended up with a good number of people of all ages and English abilities in the morning and afternoon. A real success!


The evening found us enjoying an amazing “farewell¨” dinner at Trio’s—great menu, wonderful dining experience.
