Tomorrow morning we're heading out to Rhode Island. It's a yearly pilgrimage, at least it is when we're actually on the East Coast and able to go. It means seeing friends and family that we don't get to see very often and it means fresh seafood, salt air, and the sound of the ocean from morning till night. What more could anyone ask for? Well, I would love to bring the dog and the cats but fortunately my mom is babysitting the beasties for us while we're gone. We'll miss all of them while we're away. It's a luxury to know that Mom will be holding down the fort. We'll be posting from the road and we're actually bringing some work on vacation with us. Not that we're complaining, almost anything is easier at a beach house. Now if we could only figure out how to live in one year round we'd be all set.
