Time in New England took me away.
To long rocky beaches, and you by the bay
We started a story, whose end must now wait....
Aaand now you know I secretly love Barry Manilow. Actually you'd only know that if YOU also secretly love Barry Manilow. So there's that!
My incredibly generous mother gave Dave and I a weekend away for our anniversary. We went to the Shelter Harbor Inn. It's a lovely, homey inn - more than just a bed and breakfast (though breakfast is included).
The weather was ideal. Dave and I took a walk to the end of the road till we hit water.
Later in the day we took a drive to Newport where we had the dinner I described below. I once did a meeting in Newport and it was nice to be back and not be working.
|Who brought this guy?|
We didn't get a chance this time to check out the mansions. Dave's ideal vacation spot is somewhere in the mountains. Way before we met I had envisioned a destination wedding in Newport. I grew up on Long Island but there is something about New England that feels like home to me. Dave would argue I don't seem to like the beach much and I admit - I'd much rather lay by a pool but I do love the way the sun sets on water and the sound and smells of the beach.
We got to relax and just sit and be quiet - something we don't get to do too much and something we should do more of. I can't wait till the next time.
