|The beach at Maguire Landing in Wellfleet|
I took that walk on a beautiful long weekend in Wellfleet. We scheduled it so that all three kids could come; as they get older that gets harder to do, and it was such a pleasure to have them together.
We got a lot in: Sitting and walking on the beach, jumping into the still-cold Atlantic ocean, a walk/swim on the bay, a little shopping, a little hanging around, and dinner at The Beachcomber, a restaurant on the beach. Diane, David and Sam came later on, and we had a fire on the beach at night under a canopy of stars and made s'mores while watching the harvest moon appear like an orange apparition that changed shape as it rose in the sky.

I had made a face the day before upon mention of my upcoming birthday, and Katie had said, "Why wouldn't you celebrate another year of being alive?"
I thought of her words again in that beautiful spot.
There is a lot to celebrate.
