A Good One To Miss
Greetings from sunny (and surprisingly cool) Indian Rocks Beach, FL – located on the Gulf coast, just north of St. Petersburg and just south of Clearwater. It is here that Susan and I are wrapping up our honeymoon, which has been nothing short of absolutely perfect. Our beachfront condo was perfect. The weather was perfect (one rainy day in the middle of the week we spent here – just right to give our sunburns a rest).
With all the perfection going on and Sunday being the last full day of honeymooning, I actually made the decision to not watch what is usually a boring race from Belle Isle – even though I had Susan’s full blessings to do so. But as luck would have it, by the time we decided to go up and eat a late lunch, the race was just starting.
We watched the first thirty-three laps, but when the pavement started coming up, the beach was calling. We came back in and saw the last six laps on ESPN News. For the record, Scott Dixon led a Honda top-three podium sweep. From what I saw, this race was a snoozer. I did hear the announcers talking about some great restarts, but I missed those.
Based on what I saw, it was a good race to miss. From what I’ve seen at Belle Isle in the past – I figured it would be, I’m, glad I chose to spend the day the way I did. I’ll be back here on Wednesday and on my regular Mon-Wed-Fri schedule, when I re-enter the real world. Thanks for the time off.
