HOUSEHOLD HINT: Going to the beach? Bring some baby powder and when getting ready to leave, sprinkle yourself and the children with the powder and the sand will slide right off.

  10. You certainly ARE seeing the best of your beautiful harbor town. Although as I remember our visit there, really there is almost nothing that isn't wonderful about it (at least this time of year!). I would live at the coast (any coast) if I had to pick one place (maybe someday I will). Loved the haiku (always feel a feather is a magical sign).

  20. Oh it looks like you are having a delightful summer Carol. I love the feather from the sky. I found a yellow one the other morning and since yellow birds are less common I wondered from where that birdie had flown.
