A very pretty day in Wellfleet today.
True the temperature was only around 60 and the wind was kicking up but It is the unofficial start of summer they tell me and the Atlantic beckoned…

Ailsa’s theme this week is Rivers. A lovely choice to my mind.

Mother’s Day was warm and sunny in NYC, a little foretaste of summer. The Hudson and the riverwalk and the parks between 125th and 50th Street were all very crowded.
