Yesterday we took a rolling and fairly relaxing bike ride around Mason's Island and over to Ender's Island and through the St. Edmund's Retreat Center. It was a cool morning with a slight, refreshing breeze blowing, and the ride seemed easier than some we have done. We caught many glimpses of the sea here and there -- a cove in the sunshine around a bend, a wide stretch of blue water out to distant islands. The retreat center seems to be a place of silence and serenity, with small stone buildings and the simplest of gardens here and there. We decided we would definitely return.
In the evening, Delycia went to yoga at The Egg, and I stayed home and read Shakespeare and started preparing supper. (This is my week to take care of Delycia -- such a pleasure!)
