The sun is going down. I've watched a loggerhead turtle swim past the boat. Maybe she is on her way to lay eggs. I think it is amazing that loggerheads return to their natal beach to lay eggs. Dolphins have been swimming and blowing out their breath all afternoon. So much beauty in this place that it swells my heart.
I spent the morning in the water with my old dog. She enjoyed the swim and the relative coolness of the water. The temperature is about 84 F but that's better than the 105 F heat index today.
I polished the bronze cowl vents this afternoon. They look great against the varnished teak. Work on the boat doesn't end which is okay. It's a labor of love .
Tonight I fixed some cheese tortellini, smoked salmon, Caesar salad, and French bread. We are having a feast. Life feels easy today. I will take that and enjoy the last few moments of the sun.
