A Perfect Day!
Beach Umbrellas Under a Bright Blue Sky!
Lights flickered on and off a few times, and we were ready with the one candle we could find, just in case, though we never lost power. The panoramic lightning show all around this many-windowed house provided a lot of "oohs" and "Did you see that?" and "Wow!" and forced a few of us away from the windows, actually concerned that we were too close to the action!
A seaside storm is an awesome thing. We're pretty sure that one lightning bolt made contact close to home. We saw the strike and heard a crack. My sister Anne said that lightning finds them -- they have a history of lightning strikes finding their real-life homes: one house was struck twice, another once! Fortunately, it didn't find us last night!
We were off to an easy start this morning. Patrick and John went to play 9 holes of golf. Anne and I went to find breakfast out -- a little place called Emerald Grill where a breakfasat platter is $4.99.
I'm thinking that I'm going to relish every second of the remaining three days here, and whether the sun comes out or we have storms for the rest of the time, it doesn't matter. It's great to be here and to be enjoying time with my sister and her family, storm clouds or no.
