  • A Vacation Diary: Day Three

    (originally published on July 24, 2013)


    Day Three:

    • waking up to a chorus of birds and church bells in the distance
    • getting caught in an early morning rainstorm with Miss Tipper Marie, aka Miss Fuzzy Britches, in tow
    • a rainy morning to catch up on fun creative projects (working on my Jamaica One Love Bus tour video, viewing VSCO cam tutorials, and figuring out my new camera!)
    • the sky clearing and bright Cape-Cod-in-July sun appearing
    • taking the new camera out for a spin, training wheels intact for now
    • walking 10 feet from the house and getting my first "nice camera!" and feeling pretty goshdarn fly
    • red raspberries and blue blueberries
    • rolled up luncheon meat (so fancy!)
    • bourbon caramel pistachio brittle ice cream at Scoop
    • unexpected doggie kisses
    • a hearty home-cooked meal: pork chops, corn, green beans, and a salt-crusted baked potato
    • the sun returning just in time to produce a glorious golden hour and sunset
    • reading before bed

    And this:
