JOURNAL: On Fire Island, June 29, 2006
I had a wonderful rest last night, a full eight hours of blissful refreshment. The windows in my little bedroom were open, and a cool island breeze was blowing across me all night. I listened to the Red Sox – Mets game as I dozed off, which might have helped my sleep be especially peaceful, since the Sox were comfortably ahead when I turned off the light. Cat and I had one final, wonderful conversation on the deck this morning as we ate our breakfast, and then Quino and two of his friends walked me down to the dock to catch the ferry. My ride across the bay was pleasant, as always, what with the refreshing winds blowing and the shore birds diving and soaring all around the boat. It was a happy way to bring an end to another grand visit to Fire Island.
