"It was imprudent of us, in the first place, to become authors. We could have become something regular, but we managed not to.
We were lucky, but we were also determined." Roy Blount Jr

"I don’t change the facts to enhance the drama. I think of it the other way round, the drama has got to fit the facts,
and it’s your job as a writer to find the shape in real life."
Hilary Mantel

Morning on the Bay

After an occasionally stressful week, which concluded with some strangely, unseasonably hot weather, we're all thankful to be together at the lake cottage.

The girls and I came up at midday yesterday and the Chap arrived later, directly from his office. We had a pizza feast and marvelled at the warmth.

This morning, after Ruth & Jewel & I returned from our first walk of the day, we all went down to the dock--the Chap & I took our second cups of coffee with us. It was quiet and peaceful and quite deserted. No boats, no ducks, no people. Only a kingfisher gliding right in front of us--too quickly to photograph.

It's still warm but there's a good breeze now.

Tonight we're dining at El Centenario. It's been a few weeks...I've missed it!

Enjoy your weekend.
