Beach Adventure . . .

. . . where adventure equals sit in a chair and read all day, interspersed with moments of lying on a bed reading. When it comes right down to it, all the packing and preparation stress boils down to this:

What am I going to read?

How much fun can cousins have when they're together?Is my sister's bathing suit cuter than mine?


  1. Oh, Liz - I so hear you on this!! I am off to the Berkshires with my three boys to meet up with my bro- and sis-in-law and their three boys, and the only thing I am truly worried about is my bag of books.
    It is nice to know I am not alone in this.
    I am going to keep looking through your blog for a photo of YOU.
    Hey, that photo at the bottom reminds of Charming Billy by Alice McDermott, perhaps one of my top five books ever read. Have you read it?

  2. Hi, Maureen -- thanks for stopping by! I have not read "Charming Billy" -- is it set in the '20s? I seem to gravitate toward that time period when I read; I don't know why. (I also l-o-v-e to read World War One fiction -- maybe that's the [tenuous] connection?)
