A Stormy Weekend

Today was Wagner's Convocation ceremony at Avery Fisher Hall. Gwen Ifil gave a nice and brief address before the parade of names.

Last weekend 7 of us (Andy Sarah Judie Steve Robert Whitney and I) went to Dennis MA on the Cape to unwind, fortunately that's not dependent on getting some un-wind (as in heavy breezes). We ended up staying a pretty major storm. Whitney and I drove out to Corporation Beach and saw enormous white caps crash towards the beach. It was truely impressive, though dissappointing in a frisbee playing sort of way. Winds were up to 40 mph, so you could really lean into the wind without falling over. I love the wind, I find it exciting and bracing, especially as you crest a hill and come into a full blast.

Later that night we went to the Lobster Pot in Provincetown for some fresh New England harvest. Besides the lobster, the chowder and bisque were particularly fine. Jude and Steve taught Whitney and I Some-R-Set, a great card game that's easier than bridge, but more difficult than Hearts. I totally want a deck now.

Whitney's family is in town, so we cooked dinner for them last night and have various activities planned until they leave on Thursday.

Sounds like a great seaside sojourn. I'm going to have to think long and hard about how to top it when you come here to Ontario.

I'm interested in the card game. Let me know if you do get them and we can have a card night. I'm turning into my Grandma!

Steve my friend, you've made it hard work for me to top our time together, white water canoeing, the best BWCA camp sites and meal planning, and of course, bulgolgi with sesame leaves... these though, pale to the light of your presence.

Nancy, the cards are soon to be ordered, we need a 4th player and we'll be on our way!
