Our prospect for the summer is to break our on-island record for number of days in a season, a coronavirus silver lining. That we have this place to escape to without leaving our home state is a precious gift. An even greater gift – reconnecting with family here in this rare jewel of a setting. Fiona had her inaugural Sutton visit this weekend – including her sometimes-balanced sitting sessions on grass, bench, deck, tiny chair; some face plants in the mossy lawn, bug bites, meeting two old dogs who made her squeal and squawk and gawk, scratchy grass on her bare hands and feet. How wondrous to witness the fifth generation of family plunging into this rarefied atmosphere of blue and green, wind and wave, delight and discovery.
