I've made it back home from a wonderful week on Star Island. I managed to do very little and enjoyed almost all of it. The food was good, the speaker decent, and the weather was mostly great. (The excessive heat on Tuesday being the exception.) The ocean was cold, which was a good thing on the hot days. I reconnected with folks from previous years, and started on new connections. The closest thing to work that I ever did was to help pour beer at the evening social hours. Next year, I'll try for something different, though; I couldn't participate in most of the adult chorus rehearsals because I had to set up the beer tables at the same time.
Now it's time for showers, and Internet, and other bits and pieces of mainland life.
