To the Strangers on the Beach

 September 24, 2014

On Sept. 5, I was at the Old Saybrook beach. I was the foolish girl spending a sick day at the beach thinking some sun would do me good. Saying it out loud, after the fact, I now understand the foolishness. To say it mildly: I overheated.

 September 24, 2014
