One Last Day Of Summer

Saturday--Back to Walden Pond for one last day of Summer. Water supposedly a balmy 68 degrees. Got in one more swim. Tried to really appreciate it, as it may be the last outdoor swim of the season. In the evening, if you stand in the water close to shore, you will soon be surrounded by a circle of curious fish. Eventually some of the braver ones (probably teenagers) will come in for a closer look and an exploratory nibble. But worry not--since they have no teeth, these are just a series of tiny bumps against your leg.

Clinging To Summer

Hardy New Englanders cling to summer by swimming outside without wetsuits. Yesterday at Walden Pond, about 5:45pm.

Welcome to OneSquare

Mike Cohen has checked into the Mordor Hilton on OneSquare.
 The view is awesome; but the Staff is surly, and the service is atrocious.
