Escape from the City
It has been unbearably hot and muggy. A good time to get out of the city.
On Tuesday I went to a party at a friend's house on Long Island.
As well as being a very nice person, she has a swimming pool, three dogs and three granddaughters.
Sadie, a friend's toddler, was there too and was most interested in the dogs.
I haven't the least idea who lives in this very traditional house in Tappan, north of the city.
But it struck me as the ideal American house from the beginning of the last century. A bit like the one our children grew up in on Long Island.
While walking the dog, I admired the shadowy greens with light filtering through the trees.
