N.Y. Tourette – Days 11 & 12

Posted by admin on July 18th, 2011 filed in travel

Tuesday, July 12th to Wednesday, July 13th

Tuesday we spent practically the entire day at home, helping my brother smoke two racks of ribs, a brisket and a pork butt. After a day of running around Manhattan, this was more than we every would have hoped for: rest, relaxation and really REALLY good food.

His wife and a friend of hers from work joined us for a homemade dinner of bacon-wrapped cream-cheese-stuffed baked jalapenos, short ribs, grilled potato salad, 3-bean baked beans, and collard greens, all with handmade caipirinhas. Amazingly delicious!!!  Thank you Erick!!!


Wednesday was also pretty low key, though Erick took Jim and I to Port Jefferson for ice cream!

While chowing down, we wandered the boardwalk,

eventually ending up out on a pier overlooking a sailing class for young kids.

Unfortunately, I didn’t think to take pictures of the sailing class, but we had a wonderful time making fun of the kids who couldn’t get their boats to go. Though they were in absolutely no danger, as soon as their sail began to luff they would start screaming for help with all their strength. Ah, kids.

After returning to the house Erin joined us and we four went out for cheap, delectable sushi and cold sake, then came home to finish off the night with episodes of Archer on Netflix and preparatory packing for our departure in the morning.
