Eating seafood, reading, hearing the ocean, walking, and visiting Newburyport and Portsmouth, NH. It is so good to be away! That’s the view from our front balcony. Beach is steps away. In Portsmouth, we visited the recently opened African Burying Ground memorial which I had read about in the Globe. I’ll share more about that when I get back (she said).
Finished a memoir (My Father’s Secret War, by Lucinda Franks), now reading a novel (soooo good). Then, on to some short stories by Octavia Butler.
Summer by the sea! Housekeeping is an interesting book, Grace of Windthread recommended it a while back, it lingers.
looks like a calm, a cool and a collecting 🙂 lovely. I loved Gilead by Marylin Robinson, just loved it. Breathe deeply that salt air!
For whatever we lost (a you or a me)
It’s always ourselves we find in the sea
And yes, I can almost smell the salt air (ahhh)
Ah, those Atlantic beaches! I travelled to Maine last year for my first taste of the east coast and was transported by the beautiful seashores. They are an experience unto themselves. Have a wonderful time.
