And Away We Go!

Tomorrow, Monkey and I are off to Omaha to board a plane for Baltimore. We'll spend a few days visiting folks in Smallville, then we'll head to the beach for a week of sun and fun (we hope for sun, anyway) on the edge of the Atlantic.

Monkey and I both spent countless summer days at the beach as small fry, so a return to the old vacation spot is often nostalgic, sometimes bittersweet, and always a reminder of some of the things we have left behind, living in the Midwest. Family notwithstanding, the proximity to the ocean is one of the finest attributes of the Land of Pleasant Living. With that proximity comes a lot of the other things Monkey and I miss, namely seafood and hurricanes. Okay, we really don't miss the hurricanes. How can we, when we have such lovely tornadoes and hail storms to deal with?

But, this week and next, we won't have to miss any of these things, as we will be knee deep in the ocean (literally) on a daily basis.
