Breakfast today was traditionally American, pancakes at a nearby pancake house. When they came they were much bigger than I expected, not little like Scotch pancakes but more like the size of crepes. Tasty but very filling.

The drive into Maine was pretty, with the weather much improved from yesterday. The sky is a brilliant blue, with not a cloud in sight. In the trees on the way to the coast the sunlight filters down though a maze of green leaves and looks stunning.

The house has an incredible view, the sea is a stones throw from our porch. Sailing boats drift lazily, tacking up and down the opposite shore. I want to go sailing some time this week, though I am sure to be very nervous sailing on the sea (I am also seriously out of practice). The sun sparkles on the sea. I'm going to go and take lots of photos.

I am sitting on the steps down to the sea. The internet appears to easily reach this far so I am watching back episodes of David Mitchell's Soap Box while not far off ducks sit on a large rock and quack faintly. The loudest noise is the small waves as they lap against the beach. The sun is quite low in the sky, it will set in an hour or so. I want to keep the memory of this moment forever.
