The Block island soccer season has begun.
Friday, I rode the bike up to Heinz field to watch number 1 granddaughter and the rest of the BI Hurricanes play. They won. After the match, son invited me up for dinner.
Tranquillity – on the way this balmy island has September grasses reaching for the sky, it felt so peaceful.
Arrived – expecting quiet family time – welcomed by 2 dogs, 8 hungry kids making pizza, then parents arrive to pick up kids, they stay, 1 girl and her mom, another kid and and his parents who have just come in from the mainland for the weekend, more welcomes, more food … goodbye peace and tranquility – it is impromptu party time … again. This happens a lot on Block Island.
Saturday – walked back to the family house to fetch the bicycle, left behind as i was given a ride home after the party. Then I rode back to Heinz field as grandaughters 2 and 3 were playing in the junior soccer tournament.
Today I am not surprised to be needing a rest, so I sat on the beach and watched the sea, feeling full with gratitude.
Tonight I will go watch the supermoon lunar eclipse.
