NEW SMYRNA BEACH was beautiful. The water was 72*, a lovely sea breeze blew our hair, there are miles and miles of flat sandy beach. We drove our car onto the beach and parked--10mph--lights on--one window rolled down. We ate lunch at "Breakers". Pictured on the right is Elder Bean enjoying lunch. We faced outwards to an open window and watched the ocean while eating delicious Shrimp and Seared Tuna Salad. There are fun shops along Flagger Ave so we did a lot of browsing. Later we met Elder and Sister Boynton, had a great visit while splashing our feet in the water and shopping a little more, Sister Boynton grew up on West Coasts and loves the beach.
DELAND FALL FESTIVAL. The main reason we drove so far East was to take the booth to the Deland Stake Fall Festival. There was a dunking contraption, a cake walk, hot dogs with sundry toppings, candy cotton, haunted house, empanadas, popcorn, costumes, treats, and missionaries.
Above, Spanish Elders Sherwin, Stanford, and Bailey made the huge El Libro De Mormon for the festival.
