3.27.11 Back from Beyond

Mr. Lady and I have been to Chincoteague Island on the Eastern Shore of VA. We have returned. We ate Chincoteague seafood and pizza (!), stayed in an island motel, looked at Assateague wild ponies from a distance

and one-legged birds up close,

a lighthouse

and the seashore.

It was cold and it snowed this morning!

We went so that I could take a workshop on mitering cables in knitting with Elsebeth Lavold who came all the way from Sweden where she lives and works. She was lovely, smart, and informal and the workshop, which was sponsored by Carodan Yarn Shop on Chincoteague island, was worth the 4 hour drive. All of these things can be googled.

I am going to go and watch NCAA basketball. We missed VCU winning their game to go to the Final Four. Darn. Caroline attends VCU. This is unheard of. VCU vs Butler?? Where are these places? I know where VCU is, in the heart of Richmond, VA. There is a lot of traffic and jubilation there right now.

    FINAL FOUR, BABY!!! And even better — UNC is NOT in it!

    Your trip looks lovely! Can’t wait to see you sometime soon and hear all about it! :-)

    Oh my what a wonderful interlude. Knitting, seafood ( and pizza), ponies and a little bit of weather to give it all atmosphere. I am so envious. I find nothing more beautiful than the shore on a windy grey day. We use to go up to the Maine coast to stay for a few days in January or Feb. but no ponies to glimpse!
    The workshop sounded like great fun too.
    Quite a lot of upsets on the brackets this year….
