We took a mini vacation and spent a few days in Jerusalem, Rhode Island, where Mike took maximum advantage of the fact that our brother-in-law finally (finally, after years of intense desire) has his own fishing boat.
I forgot my camera and I did not take a laptop. Jerusalem is a somewhat quiet beach area. If you think of Newport when you think of Rhode Island, it is nothing like that. It is a cozy, grey-shingled cottages sitting on the bluffs and fresh seafood. Lots of fresh seafood—none of it caught by Mike.
Unfair—he did catch some fish, but he threw them back. He caught a black sea bass but they are not in season.
We went to Spain, a restaurant in Narragansett. Let me tell you, if you ever are in Rhode Island, do not miss it. Every detail of the service was attended to and the food was excellent.
Back at home, my sister went into the hospital for surgery yesterday, a hysterectomy. I went for a brief visit last night. Every thing went well and she is supposed to be sent home today for a two week recovery period.
I have to go deal with tomatoes. There must have been rain while we were gone because the grass needs mowing again, The weeds have enjoyed the holiday by the looks, and tomatoes have ripened. Lots of tomatoes.
