LIVING THE M


ike, the writer, called us that afternoon. Though he was on the island to get away from it all, he was starting to go a little stir crazy being alone and was looking for some company. We swung by his rental cabin. It was a perfect size for a nice getaway with a spectacular view of the ocean from the deck. The fridge in his cabin wasn’t working very well, so most of the food he had brought had spoiled. He had a few things left to eat, but he wouldn’t make the rest of the week without getting some more supplies. We sat around and drank a few lukewarm beers. Mike was an interesting guy. A musician, who wants to be a writer. He runs an antique store that specializes in old coins. Turns out he also has designed a few coins for the Canadian Mint. It got a little warm in his place at nights so he’s been sleeping on the trampoline under the stars. He let us bounce around on his trampoline for a while which Michele and Robyn seemed to enjoy. It was time to leave.

We promised to phone him the next day. We climbed into Earl and headed to our place. The drive was about half an hour. It was a beautiful hot day, a good day for the beach we thought. Right near the place we were staying was a sandy beach. We met a guy who lived in a house near the beach. It was a summer home and had been in his family for years. His children were busy having fun in the ocean. Those children gave us a lesson on how to pick up jellyfish without getting stung. Apparently the red ones stung but the white ones didn’t. Out of the corner of our eye we spotted a newcomer to the beach. It was a pregnant woman with her toddler in hand. We didn’t ask her to be photographed, but kept her in mind. After our day at the beach we rounded up dinner at home before heading back to the bar for our nightly Caesar. We didn’t take any people photos at all during the day, but we sure had some quality fun. Lots of work soon lay ahead of us.
