Friday

Friday morning we watched the boys play soccer, they lost 3-0 and 1-0 and we were all chilled to the bone. Connie, Sandy and Christie took a ferry to Uraguay, Brian, Kirk and David went to the natural reserve by the river leading into the ocean, Theresa and Nancy went shopping and Morgan and I warmed up in the sauna. After dinner at an Italian restaurant we stopped for a drink at a pirate bar.
