Once Upon A Star

The wind blows the smell of salty air. The tide ebbs & flows, and for at least the next two days, our lives just slow. We are staying on Star Island out in the Isles of Shoals, which is off the coast of Rye, NH. We arrived yesterday afternoon after a brief ride on the Uncle Oscar, a charter boat at the Rye Harbor Marina. We quickly settled into the routine with a nap out on the lawn, then a rock in a couple of the comfy rockers on the porch of the Oceanic Hotel. Ahh, Island life, it's nice to just relax and let it all go.

A wonderful view of the ocean from the rocking chairs.

We ate dinner family style with other guests here. Some conferencee's, and some, like us, just here for a personal retreat.

I booked this trip to celebrate Steph's 40th birthday. She works way too hard most all the time, so this "doing of nothing" for a couple of days is just what she needed.

Last nights Sunset from Star!

That's all for now. Back to R&R.
