Happy June!

Isn't it great? With the Summer Solstice approaching the days keep getting longer and the weather has been just about perfect on our Island lately. Open windows overnight mean waking to lovely fresh air and the soothing sounds of chirping birds, foghorns and church-bells-- LOVE IT! (Only some days I wish those early birds would sleep in just a little bit longer! ;-)
Enjoy it all... 


p.s. Excellent first night Dead & Co. Summer Tour show on Wednesday at Great Woods.  Even if (like me) you are still missing Jerry-- just GO, you will NOT be disappointed! Bobby, Billy and Mickey are locked-in and rocking out. Oteil, Jeff and John have done their homework and bring great new energy! GO! #SoulStirringStellaBlue
