Monday, July 30 I took a "vacation" day. Even retired folks need to call in sick once in a while.
Leon was home due to lack of work so I said, "Here, the dog is yours today. I'm going to the beach."
I drove to Rhode Island to Misquamicut Beach because Connecticut does not have any "real" ocean beaches. It was a glorious day. The temperature was perfect, low humidity, nice breeze, no sand flies. Listened to Brazilian samba music and Soul Flutes. Walked the beach and felt like I was 18 again.
The beach on a day like that is Heaven. If heaven is that good, I'll be happy.

A few odds and ends. I thought I'd seen a humming bird but on closer look it had antennae. Its wings were beating like a humming bird. Looked it up - it is a "hummingbird" MOTH. Unusual. What would we do without Google?
We've been spending every other weekend in Vermont at the property of some friends where we've parked our camper for a while. Lance and Rolyne are very generous to let us share their land - they have water, electric and sewer hook-ups for our camper. They have a park model "camper" and their place is quite nice. The yard looks like a State Park - Lance keeps the grounds looking great.

Here are some Connecticut stone walls in Litchfield County.
