Today, I made it to work pretty directly. It was an interesting day that made me a touch homesick- not good for halfway through week 1 of a 3 week trip. I don't know how pirates could be away from their families for so long! I got out of work early enough to drive home in the sun (and get some nice pictures of my commute.) By the time I got to my room and got settled though, it was just before sundown. I was able to spend all of 8 minutes enjoying the beach. Tonight's activity is sorting through pictures and putting up the blog. At least I'm getting overdue projects done on this trip.
