First (official) Sunday of summer
Sausage, egg, and cheese on a toasted English muffin
One large blueberry pancake with maple syrup and butter
Two cups of black tea with four tiny Coffee-mate creamer cups
Two doughnuts, one cinnamon, the other cardamom
You’d think I hadn’t eaten in a week.
Living things seen in the sea:
Eleven harbor seals
One intestinal jellyfish
Hundreds of tiny tadpole-like black fish
While kayaking home, my friend and I were stopped by the Harbor Patrol. I was asked about the lifejacket I wasn’t wearing. I had forgotten it. I believe this was a ruse. I think they really wanted to know what we had strapped to our kayaks*. In the end, they didn’t ask about the garbage-bagged masses and let me go with only a warning.
From now on, the days get shorter.
