It was a nice little course, with a very well maintained garden all around, ponds, flowing water ways, and a lot of well-kept lawn all around. The holes were challenging enough for the three of us and all three of us were within a couple strokes of each other. Jet was beating the both of us through the first six holes, which was fun.
There was one point where I got kind of nervous though, as there were three Mosquito Magnets all lined up together along one grassy area and they were all running. They give me a run for the money for attracting mosquitoes, but if there are enough of them around, I usually get bit. Whew.
The day itself was surprisingly clear and hot, given all the rain the last two days. Yesterday, while we were on the beach, it started raining, and it was kind of odd going into the ocean while the rain fell; but it was a warm summer rain and felt pretty good.
The view of the salt marshes, some landed fishing boats, and the Amtrak railway in the distance where trains glided by in relative silence given the distances was still beautiful, and under the full sun it was really hot but peaceful. No bugs to bother us in that heat, and we enjoyed our lunch before we wandered about the Point a little and ended up parking in the parking lot of the hotel to check into our flight the day before. Southwest is pretty good about getting good placements if you do the online check in on time. So we have pretty good relative line placement tomorrow.
Once that was done from the one spot we knew had wireless access, we packed up and headed to Connecticut. I slept for part of the drive, but was actually able to work on some writing, before falling asleep again, hard before we got there. There was a huge thunderstorm with rain pouring down so thick nearly no one could see the road for a few miles, and everyone slowed down for that, thank goodness. Then it lightened a little, so that folks could just drive, but John found out from his mom that they'd had a Tornado on Tuesday right after her flight left, with quarter-sized hail! Whew.
That was really good. The pizzas were bigger than I thought, but we nearly ate them all anyway, as the thin crust made it easy to eat quite a few slices. Even Jet got four pieces of his pie into himself relatively easily.
So I bought a small box of them, and on the way back to the car, we saw that now that it wasn't raining quite as hard, and it was more toward the usual dinner hour, the line outside Pepe's had quadrupled. So we'd arrived at the right time.
We're just an hour out from the airport, so we should be good to go in the morning. And maybe I'll try one of the cookies just to see if it's worth getting a few more to drag through security. *laughs*
I'll admit that I am finally really tired, and glad that we're going home tomorrow. I really do look forward to my bed, and getting home to our pool and being home with our friends again. I loved the people we got to see and meeting and talk with this trip, and really enjoyed the ocean and all the things we've seen and food we've eaten; but I am ready for home.
