We walked through the golf course on Monday night
to see the fireworks over the Atlantic ocean.
We were perched up on the rocks of the jetty
so we could see them right over our heads
but as we walked back home there were plenty of families
set up on blankets on the grass of the golf course
Happy Birthday America!
This is Marblehead, MA (USA)
where I grew up
My mum lives there still and it is only a few towns away from where I live now
I spent the weekend at my mum's house with my sister
who was visiting.
who was visiting.
As I waited for the bus this morning little 2 year old Mila
drove by with her mother and grandmother
on the way to her last chemo treatment in Boston.
Neighbors and friends came out to line the roads with balloons
and home made signs to send her off.
Three police cars with lights going escorted her off island
and the firetrucks had their ladders extended over the causeway
as her car passed under.
Even the town trucks were parked along side.
This rather tiny sort-of island is a pretty sweet place to live
HERE is a link to the story
It's been so foggy of late here on our rather tiny island
that the fog horns have been sounding.
I absolutely love that sound
