Still Here

  Shelley: Thanks so much for giving me a camera lesson using the manual setting. Hmmm maybe I should play with these dolphin pics some more. Andrew: No need.

In order to visit “The Wave” in Utah, you must enter a lottery. Ten people, per day, are allowed to hike the area. John and I dutifully filled in our form, sat down with the hundred or so other hopefuls and were not selected. We decided not to try again because, well because, we were afraid the…
