I could never be a beach bum because I get bored after two hours.

Gail, Sophia and I went to Winslow Park again on Monday afternoon. It's a perfect drive from our house in town. The road to Winslow winds through pines and little vacation homes. I told Gail I'd be willing to summer in a trailer if it was that close to the beach. It'd be the perfect amount of space the perfect distance from the water.

Once again, the weather was lovely. It was more humid on Monday than on Saturday when Sophia and I went the first time. It was so humid that I actually swam in the Atlantic Ocean. I can't tell you how long it's been since I got into the Atlantic and fully submerged myself. Four years ago when I came to Maine in the summer with my roommate Mandi, we only stuck our little piggies in for fear of freezing to death.

It was a lovely swim that concluded with me and Sophia doing push ups in the shallow water. I'm still getting my Pilates on so I'm not a softie when I get back to teaching next week! How shameful would it be if I didn't have muscles to show off with my tan?

Even though ten days is a loooong time to be away from Kev and Maddie, I'm having a wonderful trip. This week has been the best week of weather that Maine has had all summer long. I like to think it's God's way of rewarding me for sticking with a job for seven years that didn't allow vacations in the month of August.

It was worth the wait.
