Was shorter, colder and later than usual. But a "first" all the same. A late afternoon run around the sand & playground, Mexican food at the taco place downtown to visit my niece at work, gum balls from an ancient robot dispenser at a nearby liquor store followed by a late night drop off of shop orders mixed with a brief visit with friends. It was the best little mid-week escape. Gave us all a taste of the sun soaked glory in store for us this summer, when RV season picks up and we pack up our bags to stake claim on a sandy bank at our favorite beach for weekend camp living.
