It was wonderful just to get to the cabin...especially since it required such an early departure to get the last a.m. ferry ride to the island.
And after lots of ferry boating, there was much row boating done by Moose and Cookie Monster. It was her first time in a dinghy and first time rowing. What do you think? I'm not sure if she enjoyed it or not.
(too bad i am still so inept with a camera, because if this weren't overexposed, it would be the best picture of the whole trip!)
As you can imagine, there are plenty of stories, pictures, and such to share. Enough to last a couple weeks anyway, when combined with my daily ponderings i'd like to share: my dream job, my developing love of Dylan Ratigan...well, his brain and his rightly pointed anger at the U.S. Gov't--we should all be so angry and vigilant (but then they'd think we were French--did you see the French farmers took their tractors to the streets in protest against commodities markets and the gov't? I think they'd be busy with planting seed this time of year, but hey, what do i know? I'm not a French, a farmer, or a French farmer. They might want to be careful what they ask for, or they could bring the plight of the US farmer their way!!) and the surprise i fell in love with that we found in the cabin this time!! I'm still behind in my gardening posts too. Ei yi ei!
However, during my Lenten break from here, i am happy to report that homeschool is back on track, along with other tasks around here. I really missed reading everyone's updates though!! Still no new news on the home-buying-front--things are getting sucked up so fast with the hype about the $8k credit charade ending and the "possibility of mortgage rate hikes". Only things that are left are newly constructed crap-mansions with plenty of acreage under power lines or older crap-mansions with plenty of acreage under high voltage powerlines. So, we sit and wait, patiently....inhaling the 2nd hand smoke from our neighbours and averting our eyes from the bikini baristas at every turn from our home. Aaah, what a life!
Tomorrow, i promise, much less sarcasmism and tons more pictures--that may be in focus even! :o)
