Sunshine had crested the eastern horizon as Jello and I walked the quarter mile of Discovery Trail to the point where Clark’s Tree sculpture is installed. As we departed the macadam trail, a crow cawed into the coming day.
We climbed ahead over the dune-berm to the wide sandy flat that is Long Beach.
In the afternoon workers began what will be a year-long project at The Breakers — building a state-of-the-art indoor swimming pool.
Though sad to see the trees come down, I’m excited about how this upgrade will improve the experience of the many visitors who stay here!
