Scenes from Haven
These were taken on Sunday from Haven Beach. Although it was overcast earlier, the day turned out to be fairly nice. I spent most of the afternoon grilling some tuna for a family dinner unofficially in honor of Middle Sister's birthday. (Middle Sis wasn't in attendance, but we used it as an excuse for a Thanksgiving-like feast nevertheless.)
Another reason for the dinner was Son's return home from the NASA program he attended (aka Virginia Aerospace Science and Technology Scholars/VASTS). Friday I left work early to head over to NASA/Langley for the closing ceremonies. I confess that until then I had little direct knowledge of the program, which is absolutely free of charge to those selected to participate. All I can say is if you live in Virginia and have a son or daughter who is a rising junior, you should definitely take a look at the website and encourage your student to apply. They are exposed to so much and (I'll say it again because it is important), it's free of charge thanks to the sponsors.
That's it for now. Anything exciting in your neck of the woods?
