Somewhere New: Gwynn's Island - Virginia
This past weekend I went to Gwynn's Island with my old friend Chelsea. Staying on the island was a bit like going back in time. There is no wifi. It's almost like you don't have a cell phone because it doesn't work. And I was surrounded by such lovely antiques and comfy beds that it was all I could do not to totally indulge myself and nap all day.
This was my first time staying on the bay and I have to say: I like it. It's silent, absolutely silent at night and the island gets so black that you forget where you came from and just look up at the sky. The combination of the stary sky and the warm bay water were enough to distract me from the mosquito bites and I happily spent my time reading and snacking on fruit these few days Chelsea and I spent together.
