We inadvertently chose the best day to go to the Boardwalk while at the beach house. It was rainy and cold and not very sunny until late afternoon. When other people are miserable in the aforementioned state, mostly, those people choose to stay home. Not us! We did not wait in a single line! In fact, by the end of the night, Melanie and I both agreed that we had been 'rided out'- which never happens. It was a good day full of fun rides, a random eastern European man named Vesko, a spotting of a local Napa photographer I am star- struck by and lots of roasted corn on the cob. I most definitely count this day on the pro side of my life list.
