  • A Vacation Diary: Day Four

    (originally published on July 25, 2013)


    Day Four:

    • an early morning walk at Herring Cove with Tipper and having the beach to ourselves
    • watching Tipper run
    • joyful glee in discovering I was the first one at the pool ("It's mine, mine, MINE!")
    • a butterfly landing on my towel
    • those peach daiquiris again
    • a tasty grilled chicken caesar salad
    • Bob Marley on shuffle
    • sitting in an Adirondack chair looking out at the curve of Cape Cod Bay
    • hearing a man in his Jeep, top down, singing Al Green's "Let's Stay Together" at the top of his lungs 
    • not watching TV since Monday (nope, not even to see that baby)
    • finishing another book
    • starting a third that is gripping from the first word
    • peri peri wings and bunny chow at the South African restaurant in town (no actual bunnies in the bunny chow)
    • ice cream before bed

    And this:
