That's why we live here.
After a sweltering day, my visiting dad took us to dinner across the water at a Sound's edge restaurant. We sipped and dined and indulged in chocolate and afterward lingered while the once per hour ferry made its way back to our side once again. I watched it dock twice while relaxing over food and drink and tried hard to see the scene laid before me through the eyes I use to read of Greek isles and sleepy sea-drenched locales on the other side of the globe. Are we really so different?
As the commercial might say:
Dinner at the waterfront restaurant? Expensive (but admittedly I didn't pay)
Everything else? Priceless.
