The Last Stop

Thursday, October 16

Our final stop was my second addition to our vacation's agenda (L.L. Bean being the first). Having worked at the Florida Conference of Seventh-day Adventists since summer of 1992, it was thrilling to finally see the Adventist Church's world headquarters, the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists in Silver Spring, Maryland, just north of Washington, D.C. I endeavored to track down some friends of mine who worked there, but only saw one, and talked to another by phone who was in the other end of the building, and rather busy. A third was in a meeting, and the fourth was actually at the Florida Conference that same day for meetings, and had probably tried to find me!! Que sera sera, eh?

Oh yes, and there was a really nice pond in front of the office with a good number of geese floating around.

Upon returning home to Orlando and finding ways to finish off my last roll of film, I remembered a street sign I'd found a number of weeks before my vacation. Turns out I have my own street corner! It's the intersection of Lee Road and Bennett Drive, so of course I needed a photo of it. If you're ever in town and bored, look it up.
