End of Summer

At the end of summer, kids whose schools had not yet started for the year were out today with their parents (mostly dads, it seemed) on the water of the Currituck Sound here in Duck, N.C. learning how to fish for crabs, stand-up paddle board, and kayak.  This was not a day for hurrying, and it was not a day for news.  Soon it will be back across the long narrow bridge to the world of endless distractions.  But today there was little to do but float with the wind and current in a small yellow kayak, with a bit of paddling needed to get nowhere in particular.
