Last night I joined Lachlan (and Amy & David, and neighbors) trick or treating down Lighthouse Road. For many years Lighthouse Road has been the primary trick or treat destination for island children. The street was crowded with witches, gladiators, jellyfish, vampires, gypsies, bananas, and even a ghost or two.
Along the way I invited a couple of people over to my house after the children were back home. About a dozen folks stopped by, and we sat out on my pizer chatting and telling stories. It's still warm here, so most of us were wearing t-shirts or other summer clothing. It was such a pleasant evening...hardly any mosquitoes, no humidity...just a delightful opportunity to spend time with neighbors and enjoy being part of a close knit community.
