…to start the day. A 7 a.m. walk after taking a few days off from a bunch of things. (Including blog posts.)
By afternoon, the sun was out, the tide was high, and the Dip of the Month Club took their May dip in honor of Mother’s Day. Prompted by Beatrice and Xander, who went swimming yesterday, their mom, Melissa, took her first dip of the month. “After I finally got in, it wasn’t so bad!”
The water has warmed up to about 45°. Three of us went in the water 4 different times. Joy, Bea and Xander went in 5 times. It looks almost like summer doesn’t it?

We listened to pounding surf all night, accompanied by high winds and rain. It was quite the spring storm for the first half of the day.
Gilley Beach at 10 a.m. high tide:
It was a perfect morning to go to Dan and Cynthia’s for cottage cheese pancakes with friends:
Then we went over to the Co-op to pick up some crabs for appetizers (before lobster risotto for dinner.)
Notice how quiet the water is in the harbor? It’s pretty well protected from those easterly winds. Bruce is hamming it up with the crabs.
Somehow the seagulls totally missed this piece of bait dropped on the ramp. I’m glad I didn’t. The spontaneous composition really appealed to me.
Gilley beach at the end of the day. Low tide, less wind, and clearing sky.
