June 15–22, 2001

Spent a relaxing week with the family in Stone Harbor, New Jersey. We had great weather, and I actually managed to avoid getting sunburned (which is all too common among us pigment-challenged Irish people).

Also went parasailing for the second time, flying 500 feet above the Atlantic! I’ll never — and I mean never — go skydiving or bungee jumping, so parasailing is as “extreme” as I’ll get.
