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.
