Drove out with Zelda late last night -- almost pulled over to sleep but then started feeling awake. (Mom is at Snow Farm.)

Beautiful weather.

Brought the old waterlogged Sunfish sailboat in alone (walked out into the nice cold water to float it in, next time will use Grandpa's plan of attaching a rope from it to shore at low tide, and reeling it in).

Tree guys took down another newly dead pine tree.

I took in the metal canoe, but since the (wooden) oars were sitting right in it I figured I'd move it the 30 feet to the path by water. Zelda was very interested and got in! We paddled to the bridge, and over the road (tide is very high at 10.5 feet but this is down from 11+ a couple days ago, Grandpa says). Then to the little island in Loagy Bay just to the right, north, of the house. It is really cool because there are no paths on it at all. Boating over the road and to that island checks off two major to-dos in my life...

Carried that boat in myself too.

Walked out to Lieutenant Island with Grandpa, Zelda, and Rusty.

Grandpa drove us to Provincetown and we walked a bit-- this is the perfect time of year to visit Provincetown! Most places are still open, but there's only locals and a few European tourists on the street.

Then we went back to the car and drove the little bit further than we walked to Jimmy's Hideaway, which had two tofu things on the menu that they could make without cheese. Excellent salad, arugula and radicchio, fantastic fresh-baked bread (with olive oil), and the tofu napoleon was pretty good too.

Had a cranberry-infused vodka cosmo and was pretty much ready to go to sleep from the end of the evening on.

Talked business a little with Grandpa on the drive up and he encouraged Agaric to get an office.
