Me, J and J’s Family
1 weekend away
Stayed with J’s family
What I read:
Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides (highly recommend)
The gist of it:
We have spent many weekends in Norfolk with James’ dad and step mom. The house and the area around are beautiful in every season. Here are a few photos of Norfolk in August.
On our last day I was determined to go paddleboarding. I had seen the paddleboards on the rocks at our hotel on the day we arrived but for some reason waited until the last moment to take one out.
I’d only ever been paddleboarding on lakes in New England, but the ocean near our hotel was not particularly rough and it was really easy to navigate.
On our last day, we saw clouds for the first time (!). And although everyone at the hotel was like ‘I am sorry it’s such an awful day,’the clouds did not take away anything in our view.
Our hotel! The Emelisse was a wonderful place to stay and had everything we wanted and needed.
Paddleboarding, just in general. To everyone at all opportunities.
A Constellation of Vital Phenomena. Definitely my favorite of the books I read while I was away, but admittedly not much of beach read.
Paddle boarding from the rocks at the hotel.
The view from our hotel, even beautiful with clouds.
