A beautiful day Outside, and I simply don't think I can sit here indoors. Currently, it's 74˚F beyond these walls, but we'll have rain and cooler temperatures tomorrow. I had proofreading and email and Spooky packing eBay stuff all morning, so we had no hope of making it to the sea. But I can at least wander Providence.

Unleashing Herself,
Aunt Beast
