      There is a sequence, but it’s one photo at a time to listen to each audio file. NOt sure how it displayed for you–first is Anna greeting Caleb at the door, next is them posing with strung up coconuts, the Anna getting ready to bash the nut, then being embarrassed at the mess. Next slicing the meat, last the finished toasted coconut. Lots of memories for all of us!
