Long Drive for an Apartment Inspection

We decided to drive to Lake Placid to inspect the Elders' apartment there. That is a 90 minute drive for us.  Before heading there, we stopped at a shoe store for Renee to exchange some shoes.  We have found a store that carries shoes with good arch support, though they are not inexpensive.  Renee had purchased a pair of shoes but unfortunately they were rubbing on her feet because they were too narrow.  She returned them and was able to find a better fitting replacement.

We then drove to Lake Placid.  This is probably our least favorite apartment.  The challenge is that Lake Placid is a small town without a lot of rental options.  This apartment would be better if the Elders maintained it better, such as not leaving dirty dishes in the sink and making their beds.

On the way back, we stopped at the church building in Arcadia.  I wanted to get a picture of it because we may not be returning to Arcadia for Sunday meetings.  We don't have missionaries in the branch and Pres. Cusick would like for us to focus our Sunday visits on units with missionaries.  As you can see from the picture, there are actually two buildings.  The brick building on the right houses the small chapel, branch president's office, media center, and a classroom.  The building on the left is actually a double wide trailer which has several classrooms.

When we returned back to Sarasota, we decided to go to Siesta Key Beach to watch the sunset.  Since today was our anniversary, I guess this qualified as an anniversary activity.  The sunset was OK but not spectacular.  However, we were able to talk with some people about the Church and why we are in Florida.  So it had some benefit.
