Beach House





Farewell salty air and pounding surf. Farewell 4-couched living room and lazy river. Farewell homemade dinner at 6:00 for 11-13. Farewell morning Pilon with Pop and Gail. Farewell foot rubs and hair-playing from sisters. Farewell geriatric dogs and low-riding puppies. Farewell evening films, both genius and total flops. Farewell exposed bikini-clad belly and head-to-toe sunscreen. Farewell fiery sunrises and lightening bolts over the sea.

You were just the respite I needed.
