It’s Columbus Day weekend.
Many, many families are taking
a four day trip off-island.
Although the $150 excursion fare is available
from Sept. 15, this is the first long weekend for schoolkids.
We’re staying home.
Whenever I travel off-island,
I’m vaguely ill at ease.
Sure, it’s great to see my college-age kids
and to stock up on supplies
(not shopping, I despise shopping)
but there’s a certain comfort to being home.
It begins here:
Rounding Brant Point.
The dolphins (boat bumpers) ready to catch the ferry.
Family and friends, waiting to welcome us home.
