Corkscrewing around…

Saturday, we had a leisurely morning, and following a bit of digging around in the corkscrew junk box, Tommy had made himself quite a pile of corkscrews, and proceeded to negotiate a price.

Now a few of these, didn’t actually come from the junk box, and had indeed made their way OUT of the corkscrew case. After looking at what Tommy was trying to acquire, a few made it out of his pile, and back IN the corkscrew case, and negotiations began.

Being fairly far apart in price, negotiations were abandoned as breakfast was ready!

Following breakfast, Tommy, the lovely personal personal trainer, Philos, and I headed off for a hike at one of the island’s many nature preserves.

Following the hike, it was back to the house, back on the deck, and mimosas flowed–as did the conversation. That said, as the sun was out, there were intermittent moments of just basking in the sun and enjoying the warmth.

Mimosas and lounging was followed by lunch and more mimosas. And, a bit of haggling over the aforementioned pile of corkscrews. Tommy came up a bit in price, and I came down a bit in price, and the deal was done.

Following lunch and mimosas, we cleaned up a bit, and then TC and I headed to the wine shop to do a consultation and tasting for an upcoming wedding.

At about 6:45, Tommy, the lovely personal personal trainer, and I (Philos had to stay home) headed off to the opposite side of the island, where after parking the mini, heard a small skiff approaching. The timing was perfect, as our ride to North Haven had just arrived. After climbing into the boat, we were soon whisked across the thorofare to North Haven where we would enjoy a fantastic meal at Nebo.

The food was fantastic, the service quite nice, and by the time we had our coats, the skiff was ready to take us back.

A great leisurely day and evening filled with wine, food, a few corkscrews, and conviviality!!!
