Adios 2010...Hello 2011!

Happy new year!  Well, here we are looking back on 2010.  All in all, it was a pretty good year.  Can you believe we are closing out year ten of this new century?  My how time flies.   I've never been a New Year's Eve party-goer.  All the noise and festivities give me one big headache.  I really dislike going out to a restaurant on New Year's Eve because when we have gone out the experience has been a disappointment.  Restaurants don't seem to put their best foot forward on New Year's Eve.   Instead of going out, we have a simple celebration planned.  We'll start by stopping by the Ocean House in the afternoon for a celebratory cocktail.  Have you been to the Ocean House yet?  I hear they are having a big bash there tonight.   Later we will have a simple dinner at home with shrimp Pad Thai and molten lava cakes. Yum!  Not sure how authentic this is for a Pad Thai recipes because I have never actually ordered it in a restaurant.  All I know is that we love this

Cabin Fever Antidote-a Walk on the Beach

A blizzard blew through the Northeast this week making it a challenge to get out of the house.  It was cold, dreary and windy as all get out!  Yesterday the weather improved.  The sun came out and the temperature climbed above thirty degrees.  You know how much I love to walk on the beach so I decided I would see if the beach was accessible.  Off I went to beautiful Watch Hill.  As you can see I was pretty much alone there. I forged ahead and saw others had attempted a beach walk before me. I was rewarded with a picture perfect view. The storm had covered the beach with rocks making it a perfect day to search for sea glass, my new obsession. It turned out to be a great day for treasure hunting.  I found lots of the colorful sea glass gems laying along the shoreline. I walked the full length of East Beach.  After ninety minutes I had a full dose of vitamin D, a pocketful of sea glass and one lonely action figure. Nice, huh? Ta-Ta for now. >
