Another Birthday and maybe a Brush with Bill

LM's daughter, Meaghan turned 25 last weekend and her wish was to have beautiful sushi. The rest of us - LM, Kristi and I, are not sushi fans, but off we went to the lovely Ying's in Hyannis. Much to our surprise they had some very delicious options and we had a delightful dinner. As you can see in the photo, Meggie, had a beautiful sushi platter and she savored every bite. Tomorrow I have guests from New Jersey arriving at my house to stay for 6 days. Things are just about ready and tomorrow morning I will pack myself up and move over to LM and Ms G's house. Ah fun....meanwhile, during the time I'll be moving my things, it looks like Chatham and environs will feel the effects of hurricane Bill. Seeing we are perched on the elbow of Cape Cod and jutting out into the Atlantic, LM and I are hoping to have a little weather action here. Yesterday, the town was filled with dish trucks from all the major networks and one would think we were expecting a direct hit. They were also covering the fact that 2 kayakers witnessed the attack on a seal by a great white shark this week. It happened very near ligthhouse beach where I go each morning. It actuallly is not that unusual as we have a HUGE population of seals who loll about on the barrier beach.

Wednesday evening, a friend and I went for dinner at the Outer Bar & Grille at Wequassett Inn & Resort. It was such a perfect evening and we each had beautiful salads and a glass a wine. My company has been working on upgrades at the resort over the past few years and I was thrilled to see how beautiful it is looking. The flowers were spectacular!

The view from where we had dinner on the porch.

I'll be back on the weekend with other birthday news.
PS. Forgive the poor photo camera is on its last legs. New one arrives next week. Stay tuned.

We were in Chatham last Friday and thought of you. The crowds were something and it was amazing the amount of activity surrounding the potential hurricane. We too were looking forward to a little action.

While the waves were intense and the beaches were closed it was pretty mild.

The Great White story was wild and I expect did a job on the kayak rentals for a while.

Glad to here your time with company went well.

Nice Blog to read. Just happen to stumble upon it.

I, like you, just love cat's. My Wife and I have had 2 in the past, but had to put them both to sleep cause of illness. Would like to have another one, but the Vet's are just getting so darn expensive.

I'm reading what you have gone thru in the past. I'm sorry that you had to put up with so much. I think that all of us have had one or two bad times in our Lives, including me.

Nice to meet you and stay well.
