After lunch we took a hike up to a waterfall. Along the way we saw some interesting flowers and enjoyed walking through the jungle.
At the waterfall we enjoyed drinking and eating some young coconuts which the locals were selling.
On the way back we stopped at a ministry center that some friends of ours have set up to help the folks living in that area. In the evening we hiked down the beach to an Italian restaurant and ate our pizza while watching people lite fireworks on the beach.... and at the table next to ours. This made for a bit of excitement because some of the fireworks malfunctioned and blew up or went off the wrong way.
New Years Day we ate breakfast on the beach. Heidi and the kids surprised me with some birthday gifts and then we headed for home to prepare for our annual conference.
