Cape Cod Count Down

Here is a picture of the house we will be staying in on Cape Cod. Apparently it’s only 200 yards from the ocean, so I’m looking forward to doing some heavy duty beach combing, or mud larking as John calls it. (Apparently mud larks were little children who played in the mud beside the Thames and went paddling in it).
Emma called just now and I was so relieved to hear from her. She was standing outside a “sketchy” nightclub in Plzen in the Czech Republic having just arrived there from Prague. The reception was really bad so we couldn’t talk for long, but Emma is having an “awesome” time. She made me laugh when she said the hotel where they’re staying tonight is like something straight out of The Shining. I just hope that Jack Torrance isn’t anywhere nearby!
I still have a lot to do before we go, but I don’t feel like doing much of anything because I’m feeling so tired. Maybe I should start packing my art supplies. That should revive me. Only twelve hours to go!
