Lighthouse Beach, 14:48
Irma left for the airport at about 00:45 this morning and I then went to bed for a restless night’s sleep. Hours of noisy and torrential rain accompanied this. I get up late.
The sun comes out and the weather turns hot in moments. It suddenly feels like summer. I decide to go for a walk and walk down to Lighthouse Beach. I walk along towards the Crab Club and stop just before it, at Santana, because I can see Michael standing there grinning at me.
He has started there today, and the restaurant officially opens for the season tomorrow. I go in and have a lemon soda and a cheese sandwich, and sit and look out at the beach. Afterwards I walk along a bit further and photograph two dogs trying not to get sunburned under a beach umbrella.
