Yesterday was a big travel day. Lisa and I left the shack early so that I could charge my computer at the airport and she could take a shower. We made the 40 minute walk on the seashore with the winds almost blowing us backwards it was so strong.  Lisa went on for another 4.5 miles to the gym to take a shower, she was on a mission, she had not had a shower in 4 days and she was scratching like a dog. Me on the other hand, oh, who needs a shower, I will take one when I get back in NYC in anther 4 weeks.  I thought it would be nice to pick her up so that she doesn’t have to walk another 5 miles back in her nice clean body but instead we went to have coffee in town and she stayed there to walk home, putting in over 10 miles. Perhaps the shack was getting too small with both of us. I stopped at the Thrift Store which is full of treasures, I bought a nice Italian made ceramic bowl to use as a wash basin and two hand made crystal glasses from Poland, coffee mugs, books, plates, knives and folks all for  $5. I walked back to the shack and saw two people which is amazing since I have not seen any people, but the day was beautiful and warm. They came out to visit the shack because one guy had stayed here in September. I put on my running clothes, went for a run to Herring Cove, 5 miles away. This after already walking 4 miles back and forth in the soft sand. I met Lisa on a bike path about 4 miles into my run, ran past her to complete my distance, then ran back to meet her. I found her resting on a log with water and potato chips, a welcome sight. Animals we saw yesterday; heron, sanderlings, and seagulls. I started a new drawing, they are more like sketches since there is only so much I can actually do here.
