thick air

IT's 75 degrees with 86% humidity. My goodness, I am happy not to be here when it is 100% humidity because even this is an experience for a Northwesterner like myself!

For our ISP today, we worked with ULM (Urban LIfe Mission) handing out food, household supplies like pots and pans, and toiletries. We literally set up shop on the side of the road and people stopped and were eager to take things home with them. There were several stories of just moving into an apartment or into a FEMA cottage...but everyone seemed fairly upbeat and very thankful for the supplies.

Afterwards, we finally went to the beach! We've been driving past it every day but have never had the energy to stop and check it out. The sand is beautiful white and the water is warm (compared to where I'm from)! Apparently we are not supposed to swim in it, though, because there is still so much debris floating around and contaminating the water. Bummer. Anyhow, it was so nice to have bare feet in sand and to have some quiet time with water. :)

Now, it's time for a little rest, a shower, and whatever the evening holds! Yay!
