Beach Day!

We’re off duty today, and so the lovely Nina and I took a long walk this afternoon on the beach at Maguire’s Landing (a.k.a. Lecounts Hollow) here in Wellfleet.

It being December, we had the place all to ourselves. (Well, almost, as you’ll see below.) It was very beautiful. I took a few pictures, shortly before sunset.

I even made a little seal-pup movie, if you’d like a look. Here. (You may need to right-click and save the file, then play it with QuickTime.)

Twenty-four hours earlier I had been sitting in my little cube on the 8th floor of a skyscraper in Midtown Manhattan. What a world!
