I packed a beach bag

Today we had a "recharge trip" to Lake Huron. I packed some snacks and a new Wendell Berry book. We stopped in town for grilled cheese and homemade fries, before driving down past the marine museum and the giant ship-unloading cranes, to a sandy spot. (It was busier than the photos make it look.)
Cargo ships coming in, people playing volleyball, seagulls stalking across warm sand, and children running back and forth, dumping sand on their daddy's cell phone.
Blue water full of pebbles, and that slimy stuff near the edge that brings back childhood beach days.

If I ever have a holodeck, that's what I'd put in it.
