First morning at The Fairview Inn:
Our room faces east, so I woke up at 4:54 to catch the 5:06 sunrise.
I stepped out onto the balcony…into the rain.
There was no sunrise, but I stood there anyway, taking in the sound of gentle waves lapping against the rocks.
Three seagulls entered from the left like crazy fighter pilots. I recognized the familiar seagull “yell” at first, until I realized that one of them was actually “yelling”. In a voice that sounded like he had been chain-smoking cigars since age 13, he was aggressively chasing the other two, and yelling “FRANK!”
God I love Massachusetts.
