Addendum

In regards to yesterday's post....

The Last Dance at the beach house was a two-fer. The Romantics' What I Like About You for the fast and fun one. It had been a big hit earlier in the evening, bringing in even those of us who were still on the deck gabbing and imbibing and thinking about opening another bottle of wine. There's nothing like seven women in their late forties and early fifties dancing to this tune as if they were still the fave of The Wave Waikiki.


Then, we finished with The Supremes' Someday. Most of us related it to another year and we'd be back. However, one of our group and just sent her son off to the East Coast to college and she was filling a bit bittersweet.


And, no. The woman with the paddle board in the photo in front of the beach house is not me. She is a friend of a friend and she lives on the North Shore. She paddled that board down to where we were staying to hang with us for the day. As I told Tulpen, if my Hubs would break down and buy me a paddle board, maybe my ass would have a shot of looking like that...

loved the pictures! loved everything about your description of the weekend. I've read about it before, but I didn't get it until this year when I had a first girls-who-knew-you-when-you-were-just-a-girl weekend of my own. It's vital to survival, I think. At least to the survival of "the young woman at the center of the women we have become." Love it!

Also know how middle schoolers kick butts...though not as firmly as their wealthy parents (when they are lucky enough to have wealthy parents!)

So glad you and the girlfriends had a great time, and what a heck of a place to be playing in the sand.

Lori said...

What a perfect blast! Nothing like dancing and letting loose with the girls! So glad you had this time. XX

Michele said...

Those are two excellent dancing songs. My ass didn't look like that when I was in my twenties, there is no hope for it now.

This is one reason I like youtube. It's nice to share a song on a blog.

Now if we could figure out how to share the wine over your blog.
