a hot and sunny day in august. visiting the fam in ol’ new hampshire. making like high school and hopping in jessie’s wrangler, top down. stopping at DD’s for iced coffees. banging off to the beach on the back roads, along the tree-lined river. sun, sand and huge icy waves. deliciously strong strawberry daquiris at the roof deck of the sea ketch. old friends and good times. and knowing that, at the end of it all, i have my happy life in nyc to go back to.
