After dinner we walked down to the beach to see low tide. The water rises and falls about 9 feet during tides so it uncovered a few yards worth of beach to play on. All the boys skipped rocks and threw rocks the whole time we were on the shore. Silly boys.
The island is in the Boston Harbor and on our walk back from the beach we spied the city all lit up across the bay. What a lovely evening!
Today was quite nice as well. We walked down to the Charles for a picnic lunch since the weather was incredibly nice out. We watched airplanes track across the sky and rowing teams move up and down the river while we lounged. I slept for a while and when I woke, Bryan read a Flannery O'Connor short story to me. My pale-because-of-Boston's-winter skin is showing the effects of sleeping in the sun today... but I wouldn't have traded it!
