Well, the second half of my Farewell to June post was sort of pre-empted by a big thunderstorm that rattled and rolled through here Wednesday night. A fairly close strike not far from here apparently fried the splitter for my cable, leaving me with cable television (which I almost never use) and NO telephone or internet until this morning. T’was a minor hardship, at best, considering a local shellfisherman was killed by lightning during the same storm.
However, not having the internet for a few days – while being great for cleaning the apartment and walking the Catsby and stuff like that – has put me a bit behind the eightball as far as being backlogged on blog posts…and now we’re into a whole new thing with Independence Day festivities. So, as usual, I’ll ask you to race along with me as we head forward and then backtrack to catch up.
Tonight, the fireworks went off down at Rock Harbor. What a treat to already live in the neighborhood and not have to figure out where to park before walking down to the shore with the masses. A bunch of us from our barbecue made our way out onto the point at the edge of the marsh, where the tide was moving in steadily in our direction, creating some lovely reflective opportunities.
Have a lovely weekend!
