A fabulous evening cruising in the waters around Woods Hole, MA, with great food and wonderful people. The water was like glass, the weather mild and slightly foggy. No wind. The photo of the sunset, the mansion, the horses and the sailboat sums hit up perfectly.
Summer in the U.S. is so different. People who have come to the Cape for summer ever year since they were kids stand in the water with THEIR kids, chatting away instead of trying to find an unoccupied patch of sand, attacking the surf or sheltering in the shade of umbrellas. Labour day signals the end of summer and the start of school and cool nights. It’s as if winter is already here, psychologically if not in reality. Definitely summer is over.
