Every year for the past twenty years or so (barring one or two I couldn't be there for) I join my pal, Kerol, at the cottage she rents in beautiful Green Bay. I go for about 24 hours and we pack in everything you can imagine - scrabble games, long walks, visits to bakeries and antique stores, great food, idle chat and quiet reading. Yep. Sometimes we go out down the beach and I might go in the water but this year we simply didn't have time. It was heavenly. Here are a few images from the day...as we get ready for a visit from Irene.
