These are some shots of a few boats out of water near the railway on Tangier Island.
This one was on a trash heap.
Tonight Son and Daughter return from their week-long adventure in New York City. Yesterday Son texted to report they'd sampled some delectable Venezuelan cuisine. Daughter reported separately that it was beastly hot. (I wasn't sure whether she was talking about the Venezuelan cuisine or the NYC temps, but I suspect it was the latter.)
I'm so thrilled they've had this opportunity to experience (and navigate mostly on their own with the help of a good friend) a place so vastly different from where they've grown up.
I love that they're exploring the world.
When I was a kid here in Mathews, I often made lists of things to do. Not like today's lists which include chores. No, this was just an at-a-glance list of options for whiling away the day--a day which did not include much in the way of entertainment options.
A typical list might include:
1. Ride Thunder (the pony).
2. Turn the barn into a haunted house. (Why not? Isn't this #2 on everyone's To Do list?)
3. Ride bikes.
That last one was always my favorite. It still is.
