I feel the need to start this post with a thorough apology for making everyone wait to find out about the rest of our trip.  I’ve been insanely busy and will do my best to keep up with this.  I’m terribly sorry!  Now that that’s been said, here’s how day four began… As it was Sunday, we started our next …
