Catching Up

I am aware that creating a blog and then ignoring it for 5 days in its infancy is just plain unacceptable, so I am here to play catch-up.  Here's some of what I have been up to ...

Drove under this Nebraska sky while listening to tornado warnings on the radio.

Shook off road-weary sleep long enough to capture a truck stop sunrise somewhere between Iowa and Indiana.

Made it to the fantastically situated home of Dan's father in Marshfield, MA.

Attended my brilliant sister-in-law's high school graduation. (She graduated 9th in her class of 300!)

Walked across an entire football field in 4-inch heels.

Reveled in the luxury of ordering the elusive pu pu platter at Dan's favorite restaurant in Marshfield, the Ming Dynasty.  They serve that type of Americanized Chinese food that is hard to find in LA.

Celebrated Katie's graduation at the Green Harbor Yacht club where Dan reminisced about the days he spent there as a kid; stories that involved walking into screen doors and unsuccessfully attempting a dock/dingy straddle.

Wore my yacht club appropriate and Facebook approved white shorts.

Visited the Robert Frost farm in Derry, NH.

"Two roads diverged in a wood and I - I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference." Robert Frost

Swam in the crystal clear waters of Lake Winniepesaukee on a 90-degree New Hampshire day.

Went for a ride up into the White Mountains to find some covered bridges.

Western view from inside one of the covered bridges.

Eastern view from inside the same bridge at the same time.

There has also been some drinking ...

Some eating ...

And some sight-seeing ...

To quote Inigo Montoya: "Let me explain.  No, there is too much.  Let me sum up ..."  I'm on vacation!
