Yesterday was sunny with a high of 47 degrees (F), crispy-clear air, and a mild wind. Stated another way, it was a gotta-get-outside-day. When we did, as you see below, we gazed at Babson Island in Great Cove, while the low tide was starting to ebb.


We also imagined a common summer scene there: a schooner anchored just off the beach; its passengers talking and laughing on the sand; lobsters baking in a portable drum above a crackling fire; gulls banking above. (Brooklin, Maine)
