We went to Busch Gardens on Thursday. I separated from the group for a couple of hours. I haven’t had much alone time this week, so the time was precious. I saw a beautiful bird show.
That afternoon we all swam in the lake. These are good people here. Kate’s family is a little weird. The mom never talks. I’m not sure I’ll ever come here again.
A new music store had it’s grand opening that night. We went to it. I bought some guitar strings for Paul at church. I got a free T-shirt as well.
Charlie just said that this day was sad. We are now leaving Tampa and on our way back to Banner Elk. I miss my room and my close friends. So, this day is wonderful.
On Friday we went to see Return of the Jedi. I missed not seeing it with Josh though. We were supposed to go wavering, but the weather was too bad. We watched the sunset instead, but I walked off on my own. It was nice. The gulf swallowed the sun.
We ate at Applebee’s for dinner. I had the best steak in the world. I went for a walk that night. The stars were beautiful.
I miss Jeni, Tracey, Ann-Marie, and Abigail. I need them now. They make me… me.
