Cape Cod Easter.
We ventured to the end of Cape Cod for the Easter holiday – to spend the weekend with some of our favorite people – all uncles and aunts, of sorts, at John’s idyllic home. One thing I love about Stephen and John's relationship with Provincetown is how much time they spend outdoors, regardless of the weather, the season, the time of day. They will invariably be found in the water at some point. We go to commune with the birds in the Beech Forest every time. Sand dune walking. Blanket on the beach time.
John and Colette had and nourished many of the same impulses throughout this trip. John has as much staying power as Colette when it comes to the delight of getting one’s feet wet. They both had their pants rolled up, feet soaked, water-logged boots recurrently. And both Colette and Romy were lucky the whole group was attuned to their way of thinking. Meredith, Jordan, Jerry, Stephen, John and Sprout all live with whimsy and it was kind of like the two girls were encircled by extra capable playmates. Painting, panting, chasing, hiding, exploring, watching, soaking it all in.
