Tanned, rested, and ready!

(Sunset at Watch Hill, RI - August 17th)

Well, I can't say I'm displeased at how the world somehow managed to get by without me for another week. Honestly, I didn't really miss it all that much either.

The Olympics came wheezing to an end; Barack Obama selected (wisely, I think) Sen. Joe Biden to be his running mate; and the NY Mets amazingly won six out of nine games holding onto first place in the NL East, most of which we listened to on our solar/hand-crank powered radio.

We spent nights anchored in New London, Watch Hill, Block Island, and Mattituck NY before heading home. Ate some great food, both at restaurants and fresh from our grill, and did a lot of biking. Visited wineries on the North Fork, walked beaches on three sides of Block Island, and met a lot of interesting people.

And there wasn't a drop of rain in nine days!

Anyway, I'm back, and once I catch up on the rest of the big and little news, I'll continue my regularly scheduled posting. Comments are turned back on, so feel free to welcome me back!

You are lucky we had great weather. Welcome back to shore.

Thanks. Yeah, the weather was amazingly good. Because of the jellyfish invasion, we didn't swim at all; so the cooler temps was perfect for biking and hiking.
