Back from the beach....  
It was weird to come home from vacation. When we left Philly, it felt like summertime here, all hot and humid. I was wearing shorts and trying to decide if I even needed to pack a long-sleeved shirt for the trip. But when we got back last night, it felt like winter already, all cold and windy. I actually needed blankets to sleep. The weather couldn't have changed that much in a week, could it?

And I feel like there's more traffic in Philly than when we left, although I'm sure that's just a delusion caused by being out of the city for a week. Also, on that front, the air seems dirtier and the people meaner.

I miss seeing the whole tapestry of stars when I look up into the night sky. It was nice to have that for a few days.

Also, I turned my ankle yesterday on the Cliff Walk on Newport. Wasn't even walking on the rocks yet. Somehow I managed to trip on the nicely paved section. Bent it just about 90 degrees. Intense pain for about ten minutes, but after that I was able to hike a few miles albeit at a slower speed than usual. Pretty amazing joints, those ankles. Still tender today, so I may be skipping my walk home from work for a few days.

Anyway, vacation was good. Ate so much seafood. Detailed report to follow.

Nice to see you back. Great picture. Where do they all come from? (To paraphrase The Beatles)

I'm glad to hear you had a good trip. I think the wife and I need to do that. Just go off and relax.

Glad to have you and your pix back! Anyplace in particular you'd now recommend?

Also, is there any bruising on your ankle? If your health coverage at all permits it, have it evaluated by you physician. Yes it's an amazing joint, but you don't want to chance losing mobility. You'll use it for the rest of you life. It'd be nice if it was @ it's maximum potential.
