It has been over 2 1/2 years since I've seen Emilie. She called earlier this Summer and told me she wanted to come out. Less than a week before she came, she finally decided to bite the bullet and bought a plane ticket, got things in order and left her 4 kids and her husband back in Alabama.
She told me she had never been on a trip by herself. I told her since she was nearly 40 it was about time. I'm pretty sure Emilie relaxed more than she ever has while she was here, which is exactly what she needed to do and the reason why people come here.
I picked her up from the ferry Tuesday night and took her to the Chowder House, which I think has one of the best chowders on the Island. She loved it too. Of course I had to take her to Backdoor Donuts for dessert. For some reason I'm not liking anything too sweet, which is good for me, but probably boring for her because I didn't share her dessert.
Wednesday evening Emilie and I went to The Wharf where we shared a delicious Steak Salad and some muscles. Since we were in Edgartown we did have to stop at the Ice Cream Shop to get an ice cream and to say hello to the girls that work there from our little MVY branch. Even though I'm not wanting sweets, I can never say no to coconut ice cream.
Thursday morning we went on a walk to our cute Vineyard Haven Library and Emilie spent the day exploring while I worked.
