The evening started out simple enough. I went to jazzercise, stopped and talked to my best neighbor friend for a few minutes and came home to snack on almonds. Then Thomas finished work and made cocktails for us, we chatted and had another. We watched a little tv and when the show ended Thomas said let's take a walk on the beach. OK. The air was warm and the sand was damp and cool. The pier was a golden glow. What a night, what a lovely night.
