Old Gousty days in August were filled with family and friends and collections of treasures from our walks in the wild woods.
The gift of good neighbors keeps on giving.
I met Ted and Tali when I was 10 years old. Exploring the forest and hills behind my family’s home, I came upon their incredibly beautiful farmstead and their far-reaching woods. They welcomed me to walk on the land, and I fell in love. 26 years later, we’re still talking about the trees and the paths and the landmarks we return to season after season. And now my daughters are learning to find their way over these same hills – and back again.
We’d been wanting to visit our neighbors in their home-away-from-home harbor for weeks! We finally made it up to Northport for an evening together. Wallace immediately remembered (or did he just remember the photos?!) “driving” the boat with Mike last summer.
those beautiful brown eyes
when friends from 20 years ago meet again
and our tiny humans make friends for the first time,
it is the sweetest of sweet.
So many places to explore!
