Blogging on vacation is hard. I feel like a complete doof sitting here on the porch of the cottage, in full view of the MTV Real World Drama of the Lifeguard House across the street (it's like a clownmobile of 20-somethings in there), typing on a laptop. So I've decided to say just three things each time I write while I'm down here, which is both manageable and might serve to keep me from looking like a complete 30-something workaholic dweeb...until I call the cops on their late-night shouting-and-street-football matches. (If I call over, "Hey! It's a knitting blog! Not work! You think I'd work here? No way! It's knitting, dude!" that it'll help? No? What, is it the maternity bathing suit? The driveway covered in sidewalk chalk drawings of lizards and ceiling fans? It can't be the knitting!)
A few things that occur to me every year when I'm here (and I've been coming here every year since birth) but I can't seem to remember once I return home:
1. The BLT may be the world's most perfect sandwich. Sure, I've switched from white to wheat bread, and from lettuce to spinach, and from mayo to goat cheese, but the superiority of this sandwich remains undisputed. No longer will it be the Beach-L-T. Year 'round, I delcare it!
2. Stop your sniveling and sit down in the sand. And while you're at it, wade out into that chilly, jellyfish-infested water. You don't want to be that girl, sure to miss out on something fun. And that's why they have those showers at the end of the walkway. And vinegar.
3. I always, always, always want to have access to an outdoor shower. (The fact that I've stocked it this year with Megan's Misty Mountain soap-my favorite yet- is just an added bonus.)
Sorry to flash FO's and run, but it's our sixth anniversary today and I've gotta stick by my man. I did indeed finish my first pair of toe-ups, and that's the Sweet Baby Cap by Gro you see with one of Biscuit's beach finds sticking out of it. So...do all babies in Norway have coneheads? I'm starting to worry that this might be a bit Trekky for me. We've got three months to wait and see!
