The temperature and humidity have been brutal this past week but I'm not really complaining. I love the hot weather and I have central air which makes it so much more bearable. And I did lots of things to beat the heat.
Friday was spent at Water's Edge outside on their deck. Eating outdoors is one of the best things about summer. The music was good and the company even better. And the cool ocean breeze was sublime. All of us dreaming about owning a house on the water. Maybe if we all lived together we could actually afford it!
Saturday we cruised the Connecticut River. Another warm evening made better by being on the water. We all brought food and drinks and had a blast. Margo and Fred, Annemarie, Chris, Annie and Monica. Laughing and talking and enjoying the sites and each other. Of course, for Monica and I it was like a day trip. It didn't help that we went the wrong way on the way home even with GPS. Next time Monica will make sure to put in the correct address.
But it was totally worth the trip. The perfect setting right across from the Goodspeed Opera House and the gorgeous sunset. Amazing. Just as pretty as all those sunsets in Sanibel and the Keys that prompt clapping from the crowds. Of course the car ride was almost as long as a plane flight to Florida! Only kidding, Mon! You are a great designated driver! Maybe I SHOULD be the one who drives to the Cape.
