Picture of the Day
| today | tomorrow

August 22, 2008


My niece Sarah sweetly suggested that a tandem bicycle would make a good wedding gift for us,
but we've been on enough rides together to know we relish a modicum of independence.
   Nice day for a roll down to Golden Gardens, a heavy Coast Guard chopper hovered
low above the water, hugged the shore in search of a swimmer lost since last night.
His buddy survived with help from a paddle
boarder. The water was so clear
today, free of seaweed, really
cold. I went in twice. Came
out both times.
