Today we were in Nantucket. What a beautiful place, and a lovely ferry boat ride over and back. They have many benches only feet apart so I walked between them, took pictures, and sat down to rest. The day was beautiful--perfect degrees and clear, beautiful, blue skies. Marie is younger and very able so I told her to enjoy the day and walk to see what she wanted to see. As I was sitting on one bench I thought, "Who would have thought that I would be in Nantucket without Rich? He would have enjoyed the ferry ride and people watching."
Tomorrow we will spend in Cape Cod so I can rest one more night before continuing up the coast and so Marie can see 6A which she was told is a great drive out to the end of the peninsula.
I'll make all you RVers happy. I HATE having to go in and out of motels. I like sitting outside in the evening by a fire and having everything in its place in my trailer. Those days are over for me so advise you all to enjoy them while you can.
I do have some good news, though. Susan's puppy was born, today. Big litter of 12 puppies; 7 males and 5 females. We don't know which one is hers, yet. She has been waiting for a long time and her main criteria is temperament. The Mother and Father are beautiful dogs so some of the puppies will be show quality. Susan is just happy to have a healthy dog with a good temperament like Lizzie and Jack had.
That's about all I can think to say. I just haven't been moved to blog. I can't really say what's wrong with me. The pictures are only a taste of what Nantucket is--just what I expected--very, very pretty and so quaint. I had hoped to see more.
