It is a lovely warm morning on the Island. We were awakened early by the morning bird calls and the lazy shadows welcoming us to a new day.
And a wonderful day, at that! Today is Philip's birthday which is shared with his grandson, Lachlan! Lachlan was born in the pre-hurricane frenzy three years ago. I had planned a grand party on the Windfall as a surprise for Philip. The hurricane and the new baby dashed those plans. I moved the time and location for the party at least four times! After Alex came ashore and shared his fury, I took the cake down to the Red Cross Station where local folks gathered and wished Philip a Happy Birthday while picking up bologna sandwiches!
Today is calm and quiet, so it looks like gardening and beach walking will be on his agenda today.
Just wanted you to know so that you could drop Philip a note or two of good wishes.
