Weather: Another Perfect Summer Day; High 83, Low 58 degrees F
Location: At Home in the Cottage, East Falmouth, MA
The weather has been spectacular recently, but it looks like we are in for cooler temperatures during the coming week. Tonight I had dinner at Heather and Jed’s and as the sun went down and the temperature dipped a bit, Heather said it felt like fall. Oh, no. Not so soon! None of us are ready to hear that just yet.
Today was the Woods Hole Stroll and I hopped on the trolley to go down and take a look around. On this day once a year, the science institutions in Woods Hole open up to the public. You can walk out onto the Woods Hole dock where there are displays showing off all of the different kinds of submersibles and other cutting edge technology. The Marine Biological Lab highlights some of the live animals of the sea, while down the street at NOAA they bring in ‘not-live’ specimens of all sorts of fish for public examination. And waterfront Marina Park is filled with display tents, one of them being a WCAI tent featuring the one, the only, Heather Goldstone of Living Lab fame. Heather’s on-air popularity makes her a bit of local super star of the Woods Hole science world. So proud of her.
Going backwards, my day started with a series of text messages with photos from Justin. He, along with Jo, Ziggy, and Coco, were in Windsor, England, at Legoland. There were in a part of Legoland that I think is called Miniland, a showcase of recreations of world landmarks. Absolutely amazing.
