So far so good

It was an incident free drive down to Woods Hole. We got there so quickly that we got to take an earlier ferry. It was a beautiful day and today looks to be just as nice. I got up a bit late but since we are so close to the ocean it was a quick walk down. The sunrise was gorgeous.

Here's a composite shot of our room. We've stayed in this room before. They have painted it and added a new flat screen TV.
Here are a few shot from the ferry ride over.
The Wi-Fi connection is not the greatest here. Uploading pictures here has been hit or miss. As I write this we are getting ready for breakfast and we haven't decided what we will do today. The weather is a bit iffy for tomorrow and the day after. Aw who cares? We're not working, we're on an island. Granted it's only about 7 miles from the mainland. 
We had a wonderful meal last night. You can't get fish much fresher than this.
Alrighty then it's time for mangia (to eat).
I'm outta here.
Ok maybe it's not time to publish more quick story that happened as we drank our coffee on the front porch this morning. A sightseeing van showed up. Apparently six ladies were going to take a tour of the island but there was a problem. How would they board the van? One woman went to the drivers side and spoke to the driver. The door of the van was on the other side. The driver told her to walk around the van. Arlene and I were sitting on the porch with all this going on in front of us. So the woman begins to walk around and instead stopping at the door. Made a complete circle and ended up at the drivers again. It was all Arlene and I could do to suppress our laughter. Apparently she was the smart one because the other ladies just watched her. The driver had to tell her that the door was on the other side, that's why he told her to walk around the van but obviously he never thought he would have to tell her to stop at the door to get in. Instead she made a complete circle. Arlene and I were trying so hard not to laugh. We were only about 6' from the whole episode. Even as I write this I can't help but laugh.
OK that's it for now. Beth and Nancy I will send you some pictures we have taken, but now it's time to go back to reading and then a bite eat.
Now I'm really outta here.


  1. What beautiful pictures, and a lovely way to watch the sun come up. I'm jealous. That is a funny story.

  2. Oh you bad Boy watching that lady circle the van and laughing. I do not know if I would not have burst out right there.:):) Wish you had your camera then. LOL. Your pictures are wonderful. Love that sunrise. Nothing like sunrises and sunsets on the water. Enjoy your trip Paul, and tell Arlene the same. Blessings, xoxo,Susie
