Long, leisurely swim at about 4:30 in Great Pond w Punch and Nik. Water so refreshing. Cute Golden Retriever at edge of pond, near the marsh and reeds and flowers--the happy dog was swimming in and out a dozen times to fetch the stick [and the ball] the owner threw.
Joyful tots, in adorable swimsuits, squealing with delight as dads threw them up and down in the water. One determined little miss scooting back and forth on a mission w sand tools--the sturdy baby legs reminded me of cute young Fig at the beach, and how much I loved to hug her close, her cheek to mine.
Pasta for seven around the round table in the house. Dan playing the ukelele. Michael making salad. I set the table and Anne cooked the pasta and meat sauce. Punchy looked so happy to be in the midst of it all. She always does.
Good night! Xo
