Beach bests – and worsts

Aquinnah

Aquinnah

Best: outdoor showers under an inky sky sparkling with stars and fireflies

Worst: washing towels nearly daily

Best: naps on the beach once your children become a certain age

Worst: sand in between the sheets

Best: fresh ocean breezes

Worst: green head flies

Best: the slower pace from driving on dirt roads

Worst: the layer of grim and dust coating my car

Best: packing up the car for an afternoon at the beach

Worst: unpacking the car after an afternoon at the beach

Best: revisiting favorite places

Worst: having to say goodbye to favorite places for another year

  1. Did you jump off the bridge this year?

  2. Well, Ms. Delso, you certainly know how to appreciate the best and identify the worst. Wait! That’s what you DO! Thank you.
