I am slowly reaching my vacation mode – the do as little as possible and your body and mind will relax mode. It always takes me a little time to get there. To help this along, I am now on the way to Long Island with a friend. We have decided that it will do us good to leave the City for a few days. So we stay in the town of Riverhead until Thursday. The hotels in the Hamptons were quite pricy so we decided to stay just close by. But as we are taking my car, this shouldn’t be any problem. We can drive to the beaches and to the Hamptons. All I know about the Hamptons is from “Sex and the City”. So I am obviously excited (even though we don’t take the Jitney).
We only hope that the weather will be a little better over the next few days. This week we had rain and thunderstorms almost every day. The capstone being a tropical storm on Friday. So a little less humidity would be very welcome.
