The afternoon was open for swimming, laundry and R&R.  The evening activity was to visit the Cortez Cultural Center to see the "Catchin' Eagle Dancers" but rain and thunderstorms (a rare occurrence from our experience) cancelled our plans.  So, a little more R&R with games, talking or just relaxing with a book.

The day ended with devotions.  Well, almost ended with devotions, until...
