Philip Getty of Yonkers – at 11 or so we went in bathing – after a funny interview with old Captain Folger (deaf as a post!) of whom we rented the bath house. It was a little cold and not many people in but we enjoyed it. Mary came out first and went up to dress. Then Mr. Getty came swimming over and sat on the sand and talked to me a while. The surf is very heavy and one can’t go in far – but it’s fine! After dinner (a delicious one!) Mary & I spread the steamer rug down near the breakers and spent a delightful afternoon on the shore. Watched some very cunning little boys in bathing and others making a fort while the tide chased them. After supper we walked in– land. A fog had blown in and looked beautiful floating across the moors. The salt air is delightful. It’s like being at sea – so cool and pleasant and salt watery.
