The appearance of the cruise ships in Frenchman's Bay marks the beginning of summer. (That and the black flies. Reports are that they are thick.) This morning we shared the shore path with a few tourists who stopped now and again to take photos. I wondered if after all these years if I still viewed this place like a wide-eyed tourist. Most days I think I do. Sometimes I stop walking and just gawk. Struck by the ever-changing beauty.
My adult children have moved away at one point in their lives, but have all returned home; to this. They are drawn to the diverse beauty-the sea, islands, mountains and lakes. We have it all. Paradise.
