Found it.

Picked up the spires while looking for V267. Heavy rain moved in quickly and forced a rapid retreat from the disk search. (Do, Ry, Ri, Ga)

Wow, This was easy.

Stopped by the church on our way out of Key West while returning to Miami after a family wedding.

For my Father-in-law’s 80th birthday he took his whole family on a cruise on the Holland American ms Maasdam. There were 24 of us on this great vacation. My wife, our four kids and myself had a great time. What a great opportunity to do some caching in places I don’t normally get to.
