Hello EveryOne. . . .the Road Trip is now fact. I arranged to leave campus early so as to get a bit of a start on long Thanksgiving holiday. Tonight, at 10:30, it seems so good to be home again. It is partly clouded, mild as in the low 50*s, and quite windy. . . it makes the sound of the surf louder.
I left around 3pm this afternoon, with a traveling companion. . . .Mme Bouvier, my grandmother. Gram is great to travel with. . . she is an excellent conversationalist, sharp, au courant, and strong opinions on the antics of our elected political servants. She keeps up on life, and has interesting opinions. She is also quite comfortable with silence, listening to NPR. A good traveling companion.
We hit Boston close to going-home traffic. . .it wasn't too bad until we got out of the tunnel and headed south toward the Cape. Route 3 was as bad as high season headed to the Cape on a weekend. Once we got to the Sagamore Bridge traffic got better, all of a sudden. . . ..as if everyone had stopped for an after-work drink. LOL
The setting sun breaking thru the fast moving clouds painted some lovely colors, darkening reds and golds, with silver clouds rushing off to Long Island, NY somewhere to the South. lol. It was dark when we hit Chatham and turned off on our road up thru the dunes to HOME. . . .everything looked so welcoming. . . .
and, welcome we were. . .Mom and Dad both came out on the veranda and down to the car to greet us with open arms. . . . Always so good to be Home!
After supper Peter and I talked on the phone for a while and then we decided to meet for coffee. . or something. . .and so we did. ;-)
Now it's time for bed. . .before my eyes cross. More tomorrow; that's a threat. ;-)
