We’re in Martha’s Vineyard! We’re staying close to a town called Edgartown (redundant) at a bed & breakfast we found through Airbnb . Yesterday we rented bicycles and took a ferry to Chappaquiddick Island (‘Chappy’ Island). We then biked several miles to a beach with a sandbar. Some locals told us that Chappaquiddick used to be connected to Martha’s Vineyard (‘the mainland’) by a sandbar very close to where we were, but the sandbar was covered in a storm two years ago.
A section of the beach was closed off for the birds, and you could see crab carcasses and bird crap strewn about. Bleh.
For dinner we went to a place called the Seafood Shanty for, obviously, sea food. I had a delicious plate of fried shrimp and coleslaw, yum.
I never want to leave Martha’s Vineyard. It’s so beautiful. I’m made for beach life.
I’m currently at DCA (Washington) airport. I completely forgot to mention this the other day, but we’re heading to Boston to visit an obscure ant/aunt. The flight is practically free, thanks to accumulated milage points, but for that it’s also a roundabout journey. With 4 hours (!) in Washington. I’m passing my time by reading Pride and Prejudice (an education) and using up all of my 3G (wasteful, bad M).
According to dictionary.com:
–noun1.the doctrine or belief that there is no god.2.disbelief in the existence of a supreme being or beings.
I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours.
~ Stephen Roberts
Which is it, is man one of God’s blunders or is God one of man’s?
I’ll leave it at that. You can form your own opinions.
