The Sun Will Come Out...Tomorrow?
Editor's Note: Here ya go...the 4th in a series of Spring Break Posts. Ella Numera Una is on the Front Lines in Panama City Beach, FLA. Take it away, Ella!
Reporting from bee-yoo-ti-ful PCB, Florida!
Today was perfectly sunny, no clouds in sight. Buttttt...a tad windy. And when I say a tad, I mean that within 5 minutes on the beach our blanket was sugar-coated in a light layer of sand. So we decided to trade the sand for the pool, and spent the morning at the pool by our condo...it's heated, and way warmer than the ocean!
We ventured to the beach in the afternoon, and it was still pretty windy, but we took refuge behind a big plywood chair-holder to block some of the wind. After getting settled and breaking out the piña coladas from our cooler, we were approached by 2 boys and a girl around our age. They asked us if we could answer a few questions for them, so we said sure and they sat down. Turns out they're some kind of Christian group... Students at University of Illinois, Campus Crusaders...they spent 20-30 minutes talking to us about God and finding Jesus.
We politely listened, of course, but found it pretty odd. We assumed we looked like an approachable group because we weren't doing keg stands on the beach. So definitely a WIDE variety of people and experiences here!
We went out tonight for the sunset; not too spectacular because there were clouds low on the horizon, but we had fun with the beach to ourselves. There's a slight chance of rain and t-storms the next couple of days, so pray for us to make sure the sun will come out tomorrow!
