on a clear day

New Jersey looks like heaven on a day like this. It's ten degrees cooler in New York than it is in Block Island, but I'm sure even there it's clear the seasons are changing. The off season people move in today. Prices go down and we supply linens. Doorknobs are falling off and things are getting generally shabby—it's off season for a reason. But it's this time of year I like best in Block Island.  No traffic, no people, just the blue fall sea. Unless, of course, there's a hurricane.
