Parent Weekend--An Ocean View

I love the ocean.....

Over a week (closer to two weeks) have flown by since I posted last. The reasons are many.....I have been busy, I have been sick(some nasty virus is going around) and among other things, we took a 3-day weekend to visit my daughter in Rhode Island.

The weekend weather was perfect. Mornings started off cool and by noon it was downright hot. Dressing in layers and sometimes changing clothing more than once was the order of the day.

The collage above was of a particularly beautiful spot in Newport, RI that we visited today. We spent some time there climbing the rocks, gathering sea glass and enjoying the view. I didn't want to leave.

Yesterday we sailed around the Narraganset Bay on a large schooner. It was another perfect day to be outside and we had a wonderful trip. We sailed for about 90 minutes but I could have easily done this all day. I originally wanted to take the sunset cruise (which I can only imagine was breathtakingly beautiful) but we noticed it cooled down rather quickly in the late afternoon, so we decided to go out and enjoy the ocean and the sun. We can take the sunset cruise another time.....

In three days we covered a lot of territory. It was so nice to be outside in the perfect autumn weather exploring the area, enjoying beaches, our sailing adventure, shop-hopping and even dining outdoors! We had a wonderful time!

I expect life to be back to normal next week. I look forward to catching up on all the posts I have missed over the past few days.
