Cape Sunset

Who can say when the day sleeps...
Where the day flows...
Who knows? Only time...

{Enya - Only Time}

Thursday night on the Cape, we took a sunset boat ride.

I love being out on the water and it was just magical to watch the sun dip below the horizon and then watch the most gorgeous huge moon rise up into the darkening sky.

I love thinking about sunset and moon rise. How over the course of a few minutes the sun has disappeared and the moon appeared. How when you think about it, that means the Earth has rotated in those few minutes to hide the sun and find the moon.

Pretty amazing. The world just keeps on turning!

The Good. The Random. The Fun: v. 34

The Good:
My Fitbit Charge bit the dust, big time. So I upgraded to the Alta. So far I love it more than the Charge!

The Random:
We're in a serious drought right now. The poor trees are turning brown and dropping their leaves now. In August. Fall won't be super pretty I fear...

The Fun:
Emily invited Dani, Brooke, and me to her family's Cape house for the weekend. Tons of time vegging out by the pool, magazine reading, and game playing. One last hurrah of summer!

Scav Hunt Sunday: Watermelon and Waffles

Home:
A house near work that was just rehabbed and is up for sale. For a small city it sure has it's forgeous suburban parts.

Starts with S:
S is for slippery. Brookline repainted ALL the crosswalks Monday night. Which made for some wicked slipper crosswalks Tuesday morning during my run. Nearly wiped out!

Sleepy:
The world is shaking off its sleepiness as the sun rises.

Fruit: 
Got watermelon? Yes, yes I do.

What I Ate:
Gluten + dairy + egg free waffles and fresh fruit. Such a good breakfast!

Little Things: Unfinished Cathedral

One of the amazing attractions in historic St. George is the unfinished Cathedral. Constructions began in 1874, to replace another church thought to be too damaged to fix.
There was a big disagreement among the parishioners about where funds should go: the new church or the repairing of the old one. Eventually they disagreed so much the architect took the remaining funds and ran off to the Cayman Islands!
Eventually, a hurricane really did damage to the in limbo building, securing it as a modern ruin. But is sure is a gorgeous one.
 It's so amazing to see the ruins, although if it was never completed can it be in ruins...? The blue sky streaming through the roofless structure, the windows open, never to hold stained glass.
Do to structural integrity you can't walk through the church itself, but walking around it is a sight to be seen alone!

St. George Island

Down in Bermuda, the pale blue sea...
Way down in Bermuda, yeah it's easy to believe...

{Fleetwood Mac -- Bermuda Triangle} 

We had an amazing tour guide while in Bermuda. He took us all over the island over the course of two days. He taught us so much about the island and took us to all the sights.

On our second day of touring, we went to the small island of St. George. It was the first part of Bermuda to be settled, when the British arrived in 1612.

I love the historic feel of St. George, the old colorful buildings and cobble stone streets. It's amazing to know these buildings have withstood time so well and are so well preserved and loved by the locals.

We left the small city and drove to the north of the island, the northern most point of the small country and saw Fort St. Catherine - used to once defend the country. We climbed the St. David's lighthouse - with stunning views of the whole island and ocean for miles and miles.

We ended the day at Turtle Bay and Clearwater Beach. I had seen turtles earlier at the aquarium (serious sea turtle lover!) and we both waded into the water - because when in Bermuda on a pristine pink sand beach, you totally pose in the water!

This island is amazing. British colony - they drive on the left, they have their own currency which is equal to the US dollar cent for cent, everyone is so friendly, know so much about their island, and welcome visitors to their island!

The Good. The Random. The Fun. v. 33

I interrupt the vacation pictures to bring you real life from the rest of last week...because life goes on...

The Good:
Finally made my peach + raspberry crisp for shabbat. Can't have a summer come and go without this treat!

The Random:
Why is it that avocados are always either hard as rocks or way too ripe when you go to buy one?

The Fun:
Took a quick trip to IKEA for a few things. My annual pilgrimage to my mecca.
