Just walking around Oak Bluffs, the location of the hotel, especially before and after the summer season, can be quite relaxing. I don't know if I'll get up early this time around to catch the sunrise but we will definitely be catching the sunset.. The last time we had chairs but other people brought food and drink. It was all quite nice and the sunset over the ocean is something I had never seen before.
We'll be staying in the same hotel, it's more like a bread and breakfast. A minutes walk to the ocean, a ten minute walk downtown. My header picture is the lobby of the Pequot Hotel. I put it there to remind me of where I will be shortly.
I found out that while President Obama was at Harvard he live in the city next to mine that borders Boston. It's an old style apartment building and he lived in a basement apartment.
He lived there for 3 years in the early '80s. It's quite trivial though. Just a local tidbit.
A couple of weeks ago we went to a local zoo. It's not a great zoo but it's close. It was a beautiful day and a break from what had just happened 5 days earlier. As far as I was concerned the wolves were the stars of the show. There was a sleeping leopard, a sleeping bear, some birds, a moose, cougar and so on.
The wolf was chillin' in the sun when these lunatic kids came screaming and running out of control. The wolf got up, looked down, and followed with his eyes until they sort of stopped in front of us and to the right. Their mother (I assume) tried to instill fear into their hearts by saying, "Tyler. Inside voice." She might as well have been talking to a piece of broccoli. The wolves are really beautiful and they are quite intelligent. You could see it in their eyes. Arlene was so annoyed with the yelling and screaming broccoli that I had to stop her her from going up to the kids and say, "Do you see how that wolf is looking at you? He wants to eat you!" And the wolf was looking right at him. Fortunately I convinced her not to say anything.
Well I'll wrap this up now.
I'm outta here.
