Cooper Reunion

We spent Friday in Montgomery AL, visiting the Civil Rights Memorial which was very moving. It is amazing to realize that so much of that happened just 40 years ago!! We also took the opportunity to go through the Rosa Parks Museum and see the bus on which she was arrested. From there we made our way to Niceville Fl for the reunion. It is a resort town on the gulf of Mexico. We spent Sat morning riding the pontoon boat out into the bay. We were not too far out when we came along about 10 dolphins swimming and jumping out of the water. It was a spectacular sight to see!! They were just along side of the boat. About 20 more minutes out and an alarm on the boat went off and the motor shut itself down. Giving the engine a few minute break we were luckily able to restart and turn for home not sure what had happened.
The afternoon the PA Coopers took out the kayaks and paddled around the bay for a couple of hours. We will be here until Monday when we head over to New Orleans.
