Things done: two different beaches visited, tennis played around the corner twice, two evenings of checking out the live music scene in NYC, and a full day at Sagamore Hill (Teddy Roosevelt's family home).

Life lived: fabulous gourmet food cooked by Judy (Aunt Judy to the gang), beautiful Long Island summer weather, cousins visiting and playing video games with my kids, quiet times each morning in a well-appointed office at Judy's exquisite home, freshly brewed cappucino as well.

This kind of life I could get used to...

It has been wonderful - the kind of family vacation that breeds memories. We will come here again, and visit the same beaches, enjoy the same cappucino, spend time with the same family members.

On another note - Julia is playing tomorrow night at the Tea Bag, the "most hopping open mic in NY" (according to one musician who heard her and recommended that she try to play there.) It should be an interesting experience. We don't know what will come of this adventure but both Dad and Mom felt that she should come to NY and just play around. So, here we are. Life is full of adventure, and for now, this is ours!

Off now to settle in with another cappucino and a good book. I don't often burn at the beach, but today I did. A soft, cushy chair sounds great right about now!
