‘ready for a change of scene.
5 Woodside is quiet. Our Cardiologist huddles among books in the living room, studying for a certification examination. A new couple from Portugal, both nurses, are making their first dinner together.
I pack a camera and tablet and head for Poole Quay.
The Quay is Harbour and Nightlife in the historic part of town, layered streets of ships, pubs, and restaurants, interspersed with music. I think that port cities always hold a district like this one, from Baltimore to Maastricht, Seattle to Stockholm, transcending country and culture.. People congregate where there are lights reflecting on water, laughter over candle-lit tables, and slow walks in sea breezes.
It’s a nice evening to read, to take a few pictures, and to enjoy watching the milling couples.
