My husband and I drove over to the Chesapeake Bay this morning to spend three days at a little Inn where we can launch our paddle boards from their dock. I packed my belongings in a single bag, and for the first time in seven years, I did not bring my laptop with me on a trip away from home. I brought my notebook and a pen, but not my computer. I’m writing this on my phone.
We arrived to the Chesapeake long before we could check into the Inn, so we ate fish tacos at a waterfront restaurant, then launched our boards at New Point Comfort near Mathews, Virginia. We paddled to an empty beach, then across the shallows to the New Point Comfort lighthouse. The water was lumpy with swells from the breeze, but we got to ride the wind back in. We saw dolphins and terrapin turtles. I like it here.
