The Vegetable Garden

the beans seem to like the new poles

some years the red cabbage does well other years they don't

Rien put the hoe to work between the rows

I worked between the plants, I was not done before the rain

Climb down at Hoggs Falls

don't know what 1935 stands for

so many pretty ferns

the rope to go down

it has a few knots in it

so even with sandals you can make it

it is so worth it


going up again

Last pictures of the General Synod

My room mate and the neighbour who we shared our bathroom with

Friday afternoon advisory committee 

It was all about commissioned Pastors
 and how they should fit into the structure

Saturday morning the staff of Camp Geneva led us in worship
they brought everyone along

Our clicker for voting didn't always work instantly

only one time we counted votes by people standing
on the clickers it was 11-110
and by standing it was 114-113
after that the president would ask if everyone had a green light
 before ending the voting

My table number 12

Monday evening we went out for a beer after a 
long day where you could feel the heaviness
 of the issue we voted on
but everyone had been very courteous to each other
