Patti owns a beautiful house in Chincoteague, VA and invited a bunch of neighborhood moms for a weekend at the beach. Patti’s kids are a bit older than mine. Her son, Bryson, is the youngest of 4 kids. Bryson is good friends with Vince, that’s how I know Patti. I have seen most of these women at parties at Patti’s house, but I’ve never had the chance to really sit down and chat.
I learned a lot of neighborhood gossip and history. The weather was glorious. And, as Patti will be the first to admit, the drive was a little bit long – 3.5 hours each way. I drove 7 hours for less than 24 at the beach house which was hard for me to do, because I don’t really like to drive. But I got to know some women in the neighborhood better.
I can’t believe I’m going to write the next sentence. I had a final this morning at 10 am and I blew off studying this whole weekend to go to the beach. I have never walked into a final any less prepared.
One of the things I was most looking forward to was my weekend run at sunrise at the nearby National Wildlife Refuge. While everyone else was sleeping, I was running and watching the sunrise and seeing all the beautiful birds!
