G has been away in Maine enjoying summer life in a small harbor town with family. The cold waters of Maine are unlike any cool brook we know but the girls braved the water daily. The trick to this swimming is to find warm surface areas of water for an extended length of time. These two became summer friends, both traveling alone (under supervision of course) to meet in this paradise. After 2 weeks this was their final summer jump.
They both slipped away to meet at the dock after a family dinner for one final summer friend conversation. Summer forever. I remember that feeling. Lovely and oh so important to have in ones collection of experiences.
