We didn’t do so well in keeping up with our after-dinner evening walks in the city, but it was so much easier to get out of the house at the beach when we didn’t have life and work in the way. There’s something about the ocean air and breeze that motivates you out the door. The light is different and shifts continuously. Many of the houses in the town of New Suffolk are as old as the mid-1800s and many have retained some of the original details like the interior doors and door handles. We got to see the inside of one such house on one of our walks when Mia befriended a little toddler boy who came running out into his front yard with nothing on but underwear over his diapers. Turns out he had a 6 year old sister so we had a little impromptu evening playdate. Mia makes new friends wherever she goes.
