Hello from Brigantine!

I am nearly certain I forgot to mention my most excellent news, which is that Angela De Groot angeladegroot and I are, at this moment, sitting in a lovely condo in Brigantine, New Jersey, looking out at the ocean.

We drove down just this morning, and are now set up and ready to write:

Laptops? Check.
Hot tea? Check.
Freshly made scones? Check.

We are staying at the same place we visited last year, during that whopping huge Nor'easter. And it felt remarkably like coming home, even though we were only here for four days last year.

I am off now to open Scrivener (which I am loving) and to start work in earnest. I'll be back later today with a Sense & Sensibility post, and to see what you're all up to.

Yes I am - I posted a few thoughts about it last week, but I keep finding more things to love.

I love to think of you all cozy, writing in a condo on the Jersey shore. Have a wonderful time!

Oh, and though I haven't commented on your S&S posts (bad me), I've been totally enjoying them. Thanks!

Thanks! And I'm glad to hear you've been reading the S&S posts. I know from my stat tracker that folks must be reading them, but they don't usually get a lot of comments. Ah well . . . can't have everything. (Where would you put it?)

In this case, the first part is a direct product of the second, y/y?

You're right!

Yu know, whenever I think of Brigantine, the first thing that pops into my head is the haunted house that used to be so famous down there. It was a yearly pilgrimage for many of my classmates in high school. Me? I was too chicken!

That haunted house is what I think of too - I never went either (too scared), and then it burned down. (I'd never been to Brigantine in my life until last fall, actually!)

Delicious freshly baked scones, served warm with butter, chased down by hot tea. Do retreats get any better than this? BTW, you are the BEST scone baker.

Thank you, mystery poster. (Okay - I know it's Angela, who forgot to sign in!)

Thank you (sorry for the jealousy part, though - and hey! You can get good scones and tea near you all the time!)
