They appear before us suddenly, their neon mouths and bloodied faces glaring as they creep and bow, urging us around spooky dark corners toward a stucco farmhouse pulsating…

It was one of those faultless summer…

Summer Daze

 

In this grassy, rose-laden island thirteen miles off the pebbled beaches of Rhode Island’s meandering coast, visitors sit near shade trees, flowered alcoves and on benches along the pedestrian path that borders the town of New Shoreham and gives a serene view of the blue Atlantic.
