So, in Delaware, is it "shore," like New Jersey, or "beach," or "coast" -- or something else? Anyway, that's where I am, as the sun goes down and it cools off a bit.
Why Delaware? Well, I've never been to these beaches, and it's actually the straightest shot from Ohio. (A fellow looking like Mitt Romney just putt-putted by on a moped. Do you really think it was.... Nah...) It's a funny thing, my coming to the beach. I can't take the sun, so I'll be troweling on sunscreen tomorrow; but I like looking at, and listening to, the ocean.
So, here's my trip so far. Sunday, after three Masses and our Corpus Christi procession (which was outstanding, the best I've ever been part of), I hit the road around 2 pm., heading for Washington, PA. Yesterday, I went from there to Emmitsburg, where I visited the shrine of Mother Seton, then I drove to my cousin's house outside Baltimore. We had a great time, as always. From there to the beach today. I had several messages from home, about things I forgot to explain, but all seems well. I do miss the parish! I'm praying for you every day.
