Virginia, Kelly and his friend Mike went to NJ this week to see Virgninia’s friend Tara and her daughter Gianna (she’s the one in the middle), and to get a final summer visit to the beach.
It was so great to reminisce with Tara who I’ve known since I was 19. Her Ocean City beach house was great and we talked and walked and I tried to distract her from worrying about her North Jersey house which has had no power for 5 days…. Irene left no visible signs at the Shore. Tara, of course, was an awesome host! Kelly and his pal Mike were my companions, though they were not interested in the recollections, but did enjoy the girls they met. The weather was perfect and I took that amazing 5-6 pm nap on my beach chair—my favorite way to almost end summer (i never like to say summer is over).
