Week at a Glance ( June 7 – June 13 )

A week when summer arrived
with her friend, Humidity, in tow. 
A week when the harbor took on new life
as boats bobbed on their moorings,
and the Chart Room erected tents
for mandated outdoor dining.
A week when beach roses bloomed,
and the natural beauty around us
seemed at odds with our troubled world.
A week when the gift of a puzzle provided me
with a new form of recreation and relaxation.
And a week when an attempt to recreate
a restaurant dish was a happy success. 
Spicy calamari and shrimp over pasta
is now on our home menu.
