Back to the Beach

Hank and I walked Wells Beach yesterday...wanted to do that one more time before school starts... I thought everyone might enjoy this virtual beach walk along with us:
Looking down the beach from the center....but those of you who grew up on this beach already knew that, didn't you? So, just close your eyes and remember...the sounds of "Soldier Boy" are drifting down from the Casino, you smell popcorn and salt marsh, your feel the wet sand between your toes...are you there with us yet?

ice cream cones at Forbes...

This is our friend, Karen, who was busy getting ready to return to California from Wells Beach for another school year....she flies back today and we'll miss her!
Karen was busy cleaning the cottage and packing so she asked if I would put a list of books she loved on the blog for her (in response to the Aug. 7th blog post about books). Here is the list, with Karen's comments in red:
K. Stockett, The Help a must!
J. Walls, The Glass Castle awesome!
K. Hosseini, The Kite Runner 4 stars
J. Berendt, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil 4 stars
K. Edwards, The Memory Keeper's Daughter
S. Gruen, Water for Elephants
K. Follett, Pillars of the Earth 5 stars!!
W. Young, The Shack 4 stars
T. DeRosnay, Sarah's Key 4 stars
M Zusak, The Book Thief 4 stars
C. Cleave, Little Bee 4 stars

Have a safe trip back, Karen...see you next summer!
