Gone Beachin'

Misquamicut Beach

It's been a long time coming but at long last it's the day I leave for Rhode Island and a week's vacation with a fantastic group of bloggers - Mo from It's a Blog Eat Blog World, Mags of Ms. Maggie Moo Talks 2 You, Claire at A Little Piece of Me, Kai from Just Me, and Callie at Scrappin' With Life ...

The six of us will be relaxing in a lovely house right on the water at Matunuck Beach and enjoying gourmet meals cooked by Mags in between traipsing around various parts of the countryside including a trip to Block Island, a jaunt over to Cape Cod and out to Provincetown - site of the first Pilgrim landing before they took a look around and said "this might be a bit rough in the winter, let's head over there", and perhaps even over to the Mohegan Sun for dining, entertainment, and maybe a tiny bit of gambling should the mood hit.

Even though this will be the first time that we've all met in person, I think we'll have a wonderful time with little to no problems at all as it's not like meeting a stranger due to the fact that we know pretty much all there is to know about each other from our blogs. The fun part is finding out whether we're the same in real life like we are on our blogs and so far, everyone I've met face-to-face has been just as fantastic as they are on their blogs if not more so. I've no doubt that those I haven't met yet at the beach house will be the same.

Due to the fact that there's no internet where we're going, I'm actually going to take a week off from posting for the first time since I began this blog back in July of 2006 and just enjoy the good times with good friends and gather lots of blog-fodder for future posts! While I'm gone talk amongst yourselves and try to behave but if you can't behave then be good! See you next week!

  1. I always behave, ;-D

    Have a great week, Duchess Linda, with five fantastic people. I just know they are all fantastic, without ever having met any of them. But I've met you, and I hope we can get together again here in the Nutmeg State soon.

    Safe travels!

  30. I just happened to run across your blog. Funny, because the story of you going on vacation with internet friends is how I ended up where I live today. Isn't it a small world? Have a great time!
