Why does this have to end?

So far, apart from, the first day which poured rain all the way down and all day while we were on the island. The evening cleared and ever since then it has been picture perfect. We haven't done anything or gone anywhere of note.

It rained the whole day on Monday.
Monday evening cleared up and was quite pleasant.

We had plans to visit a few places but it has been so beautiful (72 degrees more or less) and sunny that we have had a wonderful time walking around Oak Bluffs and basically eating. There was one expensive lunch though ,$80.00 including tip, and though the food was good, it wasn't worth the money just to sit by the harbor to eat. The local supermarket, a family owned business, was so much cheaper than the big chain we work for. Our company should be ashamed of themselves. The very same items that we carry on the mainland were a dollar cheaper here where every thing has to be shipped over by boat.
Walks on the beach have been especially beautiful at night. And though the sun sets on the other side of the island it made for a beautiful sky.

Oh well we'll be home tomorrow and we are going to have pretty much the same weather that we had driving down on the first day. I don't really care as I am off through Monday and I have many picture to go through. Ok I,m off to do more nothing.I'm outta here. 


  1. I am glad you both had a good time despite the one day of rain. Have a safe trip home. Looking forward to seeing more pictures.

  2. Awaiting pictures and so glad you had time to relax.

  3. What a beautiful place. Can hardly wait for the pictures. I can see why you didn't do much of anything else. The way things are priced now is just immoral. Look at all the difference they've shown in hospitals.

  4. What a wonderful time you had, Paul. Looks great.
    I add some pieces of tomato and onion or scallions to the greenbeans and potatoes. I also use white potatoes, just quartered. Doesn't have to be red. But those were there at the farmers market so I got them. They had some totally beautiful fragrant lettuces, herbs, oh MY!

  5. That sure does look like a wonderful place , good you both had a lovely time journey.
