A Quiet Evening

The sun's just gone down and I had some quiet time on the backshore of Peaks. Not much going on. A few people wandering down the middle of the road. A few people bicycling four abreast across the road and a few loose dogs running around checking each other out. A nice, peaceful evening.

Over the weekend, the crowds definitely picked up. With school out, everyone descended on poor Peaks for the 4th of July family gatherings. Much more noise but so far everyone's having a good time. We have some renters next door for a couple of weeks. Three generations of family from Maine, Texas and somewhere else gathered together for bike riding, deck reading and snoozing and of course trips to the corner store for some ice cream cones after dinner.

It's definitely summer on the Island.
