We took our last vacation of the year a few weeks ago, and it was a rainy one (not to mention painful). I threw out my back while chucking my suitcase loaded with books to read on vacation (including That Old Cape Magic by Richard Russo) into the trunk and had to visit a doctor while there. We visited friends on Cape Cod and being with them made the trip worthwhile. Enjoyed lots of clam chowder and had a lobster roll. Yum! The beaches were deserted and lovely at this time of year. Just downloaded a new app for my phone and took some fun photos with it. It’s called “Retro Camera” and gives an old-timey look to photographs. I snapped a few pictures on the one afternoon when the sun peeked out. Weeks like this are why I write Peace Partners!
