"April prepares her green traffic light and the world thinks Go."
  ~Christopher Morley, John Mistletoe

   spring came and went in a hurry. somehow we squeezed in an anniversary, birthdays, a confirmation, proms, a graduation, a spring play, athletic events, award ceremonies, and sports banquets. all good stuff, finally resting our sandy feet on the beach of cape may, nj, in celebration of summer's arrival. whew!
   my wish is to blog it all. but if i do that all in one post, it may be next spring before i get it out there!  so i'll take it Bird by Bird as Anne Lamott would say...

"Thirty years ago my older brother, who was  ten years old at the time, was trying to get a  report on birds written that he’d had three months to  write. It was due the next day. We were out at our  family cabin in Bolinas, and he was at the kitchen  table close to tears, surrounded by binder paper  and pencils and unopened books on birds,  immobilized by the hugeness of the task ahead. Then my  father sat down beside him, put his arm around my  brother’s shoulder, and said, ‘Bird by bird, buddy.  Just take it bird by bird."

even the bathrooms at this place are to die for!

if you go, make your dinner and spa reservations early. room in the inn, but not in the spa this trip.  no worries.  we went on a mountain hike that was much better!

a stroll through downtown Bedford...

afternoon tea.

ate good food & kicked up our feet by the healing pool waters.

watched a wedding from our balcony.
said a little prayer for the new bride and groom 
& for 20 more years for the seasoned ones!

married on May 11,1991
