Half of you who read this blog regularly know that we're on Martha's Vineyard for Cousin Elizabeth's wedding, because we saw you last night at the rehearsal dinner. Which, by the way, was so sumptuous--honey sorbet and sangria, fresh sole and spring greens, cupcakes and soft cheeses; and such warm company the whole night through. Thank you to the Tiganis for being such gracious hosts!
Before the rehearsal dinner, we siblings went for a walk on a nearby Edgartown beach. It was windy and rainy, and the ocean surf was frightfully cold. It's another kind of summer. A wild, grey island summer. Aunt Laura says that rain is *auspicious* for weddings in India, by which measure Elizabeth and Julian will be very blessed indeed. But we already knew that :)
