Today in history

Today is our wedding anniversary, and Anne's first day as a real-live-patient-treating doctor.

Follow the bouncing Matt

As of last night we've escaped NJ and are back with the parents in Connecticut. Where it is raining.

Saturday in NYC

Over the weekend we saw Lee and Katia. We met in Washington Square Park, and rain forced us under the arch. Eventually, singing, stinking hobos forced us back out, and we found a diner, where I took this picture. Lee and Katia are about to leave for a 2-year world tour. Posted by Picasa

Yesterday we went to Tibbett's Brook Park in Yonkers for a picnic with Anne's incoming cohort. The park features mini-golf! Of which we did not partake.

The Mile Square City Rooftop

As I mentioned before, we're staying with the in-laws in Hoboken this week. This is the view out of the window of the room I'm working in. That's a three-story apartment building with a very strangely shaped roof. It looks like it's about to collapse, but it's all rather recent and apparently solid. It's shaped to funnel water into a drainhole behind the skylight. Very practical, but it just doesn't look like a roof "should". Posted by Picasa

Welcome to...

Hoboken, New Jersey, birthplace of Baseball and Frank Sinatra (so says the sign). We're staying here for a week.

I was to open a pet shop specializing in fish, I would call it "Age of Aquariums".

We are on the drive back to CT from our vacation in Maine. We had a great time up there, and then had the chance to see a bunch of Boston-area friends on the way south. Now we're on the Pike west, featuring wildflowers and sunsets.

Two more views from the beach, one from further out the peninsula.

Driftwood, an island, and a piping plover.

Myself, and Anne's classmate Nichole, at the Popham Beach. The water was very cold.

We went to the Maine Maritime Museum:

This is the view from the deck of our cabin. I've yet to get tired of it.

Anne and I went kayaking today.

And saw one unhappy bird. Posted by Picasa

Sunset in Maine. Posted by Picasa

We saw the Portland Sea Dogs beat the Erie Sea Wolves at Hadlock Field yesterday. Gabe "The Babe" Kapler was making a rehab start and hit two doubles. 2 coaches and 2 players from Erie were ejected. And mirroring the Red Sox victory that day, Tyler Minges hit a game-winning walk-off double to finish the game.

After baseball, we hunted down a classmate of Anne's from med school and had dinner at Margarita's. They had a full moon promotion going and we had to refuse some straw sombreros and other swag. We saw Anne's classmate's new apartment and then returned to our cottage.

Today we've spent the day on the porch reading. Now Anne has declared naptime. Posted by Picasa

The view off our porch.

Today's chance of rain was 70%. I went for a run this morning and stayed dry. Way to beat the odds!

Testing, from Connecticut.
