After a fabulous clambake in CT Saturday, we headed to RI to embark on our next journey, a day cruise on the good ship, Persistence (yes, the same fine yacht we spent a weekend on for Figawi a few weeks ago). We sailed a few hours to Bristol, where we had a shared mooring waiting for us and what was promised to be an impressive fireworks display (did you know Bristol, RI is one of the oldest fourth of July celebrations - they even paint the main road middle line red/white/blue instead of yellow!).
|carrots, grapes, kashi crackers, brie, french bread and some cheddar yum!|
|balsamic chicken spinach salad on potato roll (love potato bread!)|
Monday morning we had to motor in the last bit, because the breeze shut off - but we made it back to the car in time to get back to Boston and set up for the BBQ roomie Jenna and I wanted to put on. All went smoothly on the ride back, but I had a vicious case of sea legs...you know, when you feel like the room is moving, or that you are swaying, but neither you nor the room or moving?! Well anyways...Plan was, get in run (first day of marathon training!), get to grocery store, set up BBQ, eat & drink, then head to Esplanade for the big fireworks show (yes I know, 3 shows in 1 weekend!).
|smoked blue fish toasts, guacamole, corn, watermelon mint salad, grilled meat heaven,|
tossed salad and a beautiful Jenna - perfect BBQ :)
|Watermelon, lemon & mint simple syrup (from the watermelon salad), vodka and fresh mint - simple as that!|
How did you spend your Fourth (or Canada Day weekend!)?
Have you ever experienced Sea Legs?
Every time I am on a boat for more than a couple of hours, I have sea legs for a day or two later...it is really frustrating, but a little comical - I ask Tripp about 10 million times if the room is moving...I refuse to believe it's me...
What are you favorite breakfast yogurt toppings?!
I like bananas, strawberries, blueberries, some mango, w/e cereal/granola in the house and pb...
