    Another Day In Paradise

    I got the chance to run away again to my friend's house in Holland on Lake Michigan. Friday night we played the poker tournament and I came in 3rd which gets you absolutely nothing. I had a great time despite that. We didn't get to bed until 4 AM. We decided that we are getting too old to party like that too much.

    Saturday we relaxed by and in the pool the entire day. It was heavenly. I told my friend that all of my worries and anxiety were at the bottom of her pool.

    Yesterday, my friend's friend took us out on his boat. This boat was purchased new by his grandfather in 1951. It is a wooden boat which paves the way for some great double entendres. So we all laughed about getting to ride the woody.

    There were no waves on the big lake, Lake Michigan, which is unusual. I've never seen so many boats speeding around. It was just a gorgeous day.

    This is me after swimming to the beach:

    We finished off the night with dinner. This was mine,
    Asiago, spinach and artichoke dip with toasted pita chips:


    This was another introspective weekend that allowed me to try and figure out where I fit in this world.

    Back to reality...

    You guys do that Woody proud. It looks like everyone had a great time. The only thing I wonder is what happened to the Captian in the one picture? I tried to take over a sail boat once by throwing the Captian off the boat. It didn't work. I really do need to take sailing lessons.

    Glad you had a nice weekend. Hope you got a thing or two figured out in the process.

    i hope the intorspection aided in some clarity. the sun, the woody, and the food look like they were great.

    also, i figure if you could sit stoically through the tooth drilling your poker face should be impenetrable.

    You are right at the age of doing that...trying to figure yourself out. PLUS you've had such a life altering year or two. What with becoming this other person physically. It's cool you have somewhere to go to sort of work through it all.

    LOVE the woody! And the dunes. There are dunes at the beach we've gone to also. But it's all part of the same shoreline so...hehe.
