We park alone in the shade at seven a.m. in a small city park in Rockland. The harbors and marinas come alive all around us.

We walk the waterfront then out onto a nearly one-mile long rock barrier structure called the Rockland Breakwater. The pier is relatively flat and constructed of thousands of car-sized rocks mined and installed to puzzle fit together perfectly.

We devour salads and fruit and nuts in the shady park back on land. We climb on top of the table and eat cross-legged to avoid the biting mosquitoes, black flies, and gnats at grass level.

Then we head downtown to see the art galleries and retail shops we surveyed earlier this morning.
