I'm back! Yippee-I-yay!! Boy oh boy, what a nice week that was. Here are some highlights.

Our daily (or sometimes twice-daily) walk on the cold glorious deserted beach:


It's good to skip shells into the ocean. Here are Gus and his father caught in exactly the same moment of their follow-through:


Excellent stuff from our daily beach walk. Gus found a starfish and some coral after a particularly stormy night. We also found a ton of sea glass:


We also ate well.

The Candy Kitchen, Bridgehampton:


O Mighty Shagwong of Montauk, how we ate at you twice and had lobsters the second time and rolled home, fat and happy:


I bought a trashy historical novel to read, since I didn't want to tote the gigantic Harry Potter book up. I finished the novel halfway through the week and picked up "Master and Commander" by Patrick O'Brian from my aunt's bookshelf. This has long been a favorite of my dad's, but I had never been interested. Too much nautical-tech-talk, not enough bodices ripping. But it was FABULOUS!!! I'm halfway through and am happy there are a billion more books after this.

Tomorrow I'll get back to knitting.

One more thing: The Phillies equipment trucks leave for Clearwater this week. I'm just sayin'.....

Welcome home, o Great Momogus! Happy Mardi Gras, too. Sounds like a great week, though your diet seems a bit on the spacious side. Back to Austerity! The second half of "Master and Commander" awaits you, with Jack and Stephen and all those old tars.

Divine One,
Welcome back ^ .. ^
Love all the beach-ie treasures.
I liked MASTER & COMMANDEr - read it a few years back. Never went further w/ the series although, oh-so many folks have.
XOXO
