Just another summer Friday--not. I hope I live to be old and able to tap into memories of nature-packed days like today.
- Dan, Michael, Anne and Ryan headed back to Montclair around noon [work and other obligations]. Punch, Nik, Sug & I staying til Monday morning. We girls [sans Sucre] zipped around Orleans and Eastham.
- We went into The Salty Crown in Orleans, a fun, young fashion store. And right next to it, a wonderful beeswax candle shop--with hand-dipped and molded candles in shapes like mermaid, whale and Santa--plus traditional soft yellow tapers. We bought magical wish candles. [This morning, I received an article check via direct deposit, so have some money again. Was also able to take girls to Ben & Jerry’s.]
- Top photo, Nik & Punch along the walking trail in the salt marsh behind the Salt Pond Visitor Center.
- Other two photos, tranquil Great Pond in Eastham, where we ran into the water at 5 p.m. and emerged, soothed and refreshed, at 7.
Good night. Setting alarm for free, ranger-led "Sharks & Seals" walk tomorrow morning on Coast Guard Beach.
