Ah, the longest day of the year in the northern hemisphere, Summer Solstice.
To celebrate, Ted and I took the 2 kayaks out to Tomales Bay. Tomales Bay is one of the prettiest places I know of and it's a 40 minute drive from where I live. They say there are lots of sharks in it. Maybe. They haven't ever bothered me, though. And they keep the bay empty of shark-fearing human company. It's a good deal.
The tide was really low. Where Ted is standing there is usually water at low tide.
It was uncharacteristically hot and calm. We shed our life jackets halfway across the bay.
We shared a snack on Indian Beach, a bagel and a banana. The bagel was local, the banana made an awfully long journey for our nourishment.
I'm proudly wearing an NYU med school T-shirt, a gift from Liz. Also a new sunblocker hat and two layers of 50 SPF sunscreen.
Back home, man it was hot! I decided to get my annual summer buzz cut this afternoon.
