What a perfect day! Oyster shells littered the beach. Most of them were empty but if you looked a bit and turned some over you'd find a live one.

I saw my orthopaedic surgeon on Thursday. He says my fracture has healed well but he still wants to take the plate out. They'll be calling to schedule surgery for early September. It should take about 6 weeks for the screw holes to fill in so I'll have to be careful. One more step in the journey!
