We All Have Our Reasons: #225

Recent status update:

Sailed Frolic from Camden to North Haven in my annual ritual. Glorious out there on the water, alone in the boat but not in the bay. A monarch butterfly making the same trip in the opposite direction visited me and rested briefly, a minke whale surfaced and sank back under, giving me just a glimpse of its rounded back, lobstermen hauling their traps gunned their diesel engines between buoys. I like that kind of summer bustle much more than Camden’s clogged streets.
