Seasonal firsts

What a great long weekend!

First sail (strong wind, flat water), first backyard barbecue (steak!), first fire in the chiminea (Rob, Alex, Penny & I gathered round).

Two days digging, stubborn dirt under my fingernails. A good tired feeling. A soak in the tub. A lonnnggggg sleep.

Bare feet on the dock. Three big carp - yawning underwater. Goslings so young they still have the shape of the egg before they hatched. Trumpeters inspecting the hull of the boat. A loon's call on the lake.

No wonder there are fireworks tonight!
