Hiking at home

I took at least 6 trips down (and up) the hill to the cove today. I estimate it to be at least 1000′ elevation gain. No need or energy for additional exercise.

I awoke to a seagull shuffle on the whistle house roof. The island seems to be overtaken by black backed gulls.


We had a group volunteers from Idex visit and scrape old paint off the tower railing. They are encouraged (and paid) by their employer to take a day to volunteer in the community. What a great idea and the lighthouse benefitted, although they had a pretty nice view while they worked.

Tim tackled an annual project – he repaired two picnic tables – while I glazed a couple of windows.

Towards the end of the day, a rain cloud drifted overhead followed by the suggestion of a rainbow.


Another great day and I’m comfortably exhausted.
