Travalon loves his new job, and he is a lot less tired driving kids around all day than he was after cleaning cars all day, so we have been more active in the evenings. Monday we swam for quite a while in the outdoor pool at our health club – hopefully we will make it there more often now that we both get done with work earlier! Last night was gorgeous, so we went for a long boat ride into Warner Bay. We saw some crazy stuff, like an old guy snorkeling by Governor’s Island, and a fleet of tiny sailboats in Warner Bay. Maybe it was a kids’ sailing lesson? They were so cute. I love to watch sailboats, especially when they put up their colorful spinnakers like the ones that were out racing last Wednesday evening. Someday I would love to sail on a boat with its spinnaker up – Travalon’s brother says then you can go faster than the wind! After our boat ride, Travalon and I played some tennis, and our neighbor’s little white dog (he looks like some sort of terrier mix) kept running after our ball from outside of the fence around the court. He really wanted to get in and chase our ball! Luckily his owner had her own ball for him to chase after, so then he didn’t have to be too disappointed that he couldn’t have ours. He was so cute! What a lovely evening.
