Weekend Report

Friday- Went up to Gloucester to spend the night with my parents, sister, brother-in-law, and nieces, who had been taking a little vacation. They were staying in a cute little hotel overlooking Good Harbor Beach. After fighting the Friday afternoon traffic, I was rewarded with a seafood dinner and drinks by the ocean.

Saturday- Spent the day at the beach, then ate the best lobster salad sandwich EVER, here. After I drove back to the city, I met up with my former roommate Jossy, who was in town for the weekend, and some other friends, and we had dinner at Jacob Wirth and then went to a party at JR's house. A good time was had by all.


Sunday- Surprisingly, the plan we formed around midnight of the previous evening came to fruition. We woke up early, drove down the Cape, and caught the ferry to Martha's Vineyard. On the island, we rented bicycles and spent the day biking around and going to the beach. I had such a great time- I really should take advantage of the fact that I live a short drive away from gorgeous beaches, mountains, lakes, and forests, and pay them a visit more often, rather than frittering away my weekends in the bars and laboratories of Boston. I hadn't ridden a bicycle since college, and it was so much fun- I didn't forget, either, it was just like....um, nevermind. Here are Jossy, Maria, and I on the ferry, and no, we had no idea our hair was doing that.

Maria looks angry, but I think she's just concentrating on not throwing up.

The reason I look angry is because I thought we were suppose to look like spies in the photo. That's my spy face.
