I had a very pleasant lunch with my friends from the mainland, Gary Brainin and his wife Sandy. They spent most of the day tooling around the island and stood at the southernmost point in the United States--a feat I haven't accomplished in almost six years of residency. We ate at Quinn's, a restaurant very near the pier where tenders from the ocean liners land.
It was nice to see familiar faces and catch up with the doings of some of our friends from the Usenet group ba.singles (hi, everybody!) The sky was steely grey and it rained like the devil in some places, but the Brainins hit a good number of the high points on the island. It was a joy to see them.
