Calm inland waters lap the shore on the inside coastal portion of the bay. Sunbathers are washed up ashore like tired seals during these early days of June. We head out on the bridge to watch the sun go down over New Bedford across the bay.

Above: One lanky young teenager and her tiny little sister walk a forty pound steel gray piglet. He tip toes over the pavement. Kelly and I smile at each other from ear to ear. We are always surprised on our travels.
