This weekend, Ellison and I were looking forward to a visit from Alpha Dog, but because he wasn’t able to duck all of life’s curve balls these past few weeks, he had to cancel. Friday evening Ellison and I were on a walk, trying to figure out how to spend our weekend, when we got an irresistable invitation from our friend and neighbor Ursula. He has a 2-bedroom time share on Cape Cod, and was inviting us to spend the weekend with him. So we decided to pack our weekend plans and chores into Saturday, and head up for an overnight and a day on the beach. It was just lovely.
