Ever-Changing Reflection

Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding... It is the bitter potion by which the physician within you heals your sick self. Therefore trust the physician, and drink his remedy in silence and tranquility.

Friend-Making Monday: Date night!

What is your idea of the perfect date?

My perfect date would be a weekend at Block Island, RI!

I have never been to Block Island, but I have heard nothing but good things about it from the people who have been there! Now that I actually live in the Ocean State, I figure I should visit.

We'd get up early on Saturday to take the ferry over to the island to spend the day exploring via moped, lounging on the beach, eating lunch at a little seafood shack by the water.

Late afternoon, we'd check into the National Hotel to clean up for dinner.

Dinner would be at the upscale, romantic Hotel Manisses Dining Room, followed by cocktails on the verandah.

Sunday morning, we could get up and hit the beach before boarding the ferry home.

Jed and I both like the water, and he enjoys driving a moped around islands (we've done this in Bermuda twice) while I ride shotgun on the back. Maybe we could even charter a boat for a few hours to try our hand at fishing or just sunbathe on the deck.

I love that I live so close to an island that will take us back to all of the cruises we've been on together -- less than an hour away!

So what/where would your perfect date be? Head over to Amber's blog to play along!
