Well, this was a very nice relaxing part of the trip. Saturday we went to the ocean for a loooooong walk, lots of stick-throwing-action for my girl. After that, we drove around the area, passing lots of huge homes that were built here in the 1920's, Vanderbilt was one of them and you can visit lots of these huge estates and since I've seen enough of these over the years, I decided not to participate in this circus.

I compromised on parking downtown and walk around the old district and we caught a sunset over the bay on the back of a boat that I got a tip for from a lady from one of the stores (who happend to have a little crazy barking dog, yet again). Then we sat down somewhere for a hot coco and chatted with somke locals who gave me a good tip on a place to have a drinkie-poo where tourists don't go. So on my way there. Johannah once more in the car, waiting it out. Had 2 local brewskish and a strange guy on one side that was a bit weird and when he got up and socialized a bit, I got the talk with a couple on the other side of him, Kristi and Jim. Nice pair. Talked for a while about traveling, Jim was smitten by the idea and impressed by what I am doing and how cool it is, he said it about 5 times. Kristi said to stop by the next day in the place where she works, Griswolds, a local tavern and I said I would see her then.

After that I went to an internet cafe but the connection wasn't very strong so we called it a night. Next day we went to another beach that the weird dude from the night before recommended and this was a nice beach. Then I decided to hang out with Kristi for a while and since it wasn't busy, we chatted for a while and since I was feeling under the weather again, she made me tea with honey and 2 hot toddies.
The rest of the night was back in bed.

And as much I wanted to get up this morning, I couldn't. I had the chills, starting to cough like an old sailor and so this day was spend pretty much all day in bed. I'm going to New York tomorrow and want to be feeling better for Obama's win (hopefully)

So we're out and up The Big Apple....

Cheers
