|Bridge over Cape Cod Canal.|
We stopped at the Hot Chocolate Sparrow in Orleans for mochas before we left, and maybe a turtle or two. Then we drove 300 miles [5.5 hours, counting a short rest stop] through five states--Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York and New Jersey. Lots of pretty water views, and a couple of lighthouse sightings on our way.
As always, near the end of our journey, we cross the Tappan Zee Bridge [today many sailboats were bobbing in the water] and coast along the Garden State Parkway, then turn off at our home exit--154. The New York skyline rises proudly to the left. Gems everywhere we go--rugged natural ones on the Cape, polished ones in our glittering city.
Sug and I are exhausted now, ready for a good night's sleep. H. just got back from working and ran out to get me a slice of pizza, since the cupboard is bare.
We got a nice letter from Figgy today! That lifts my spirits immensely. Good night.
- Resisted fries at McDonald's rest stop.
- Drank lots of water on ride home [and bought big cold bottle @ CVS, where it's much cheaper than at rest stop].
- Walked Sug up on Cape and around the block tonight.
