Then we went down cellar spent the rest of the morning - shelling peas - fixing pine- apple - wiping dishes &c. Went down to Mary's (3 of us) with a letter from Mrs. Graham & Mary announced she wasn't going toStony Lake after all! I was going to Forest Lawn to meet Helen Davis this pm - but didn't - read & sat by the window during a delicious thunderstorm - eating home made ice cream! It felt cooler afterward and about 6 o'clock I rode out to the park & sat under my favorite tree by the river for two hours or more. The sunset was very beautiful. People kept coming into the park in swarms - hundreds of them - & sauntering past - toward the refectory and merry-go-round. When the sun was set I started back but met Con & he wanted me to stay - He'd been down to the house for me &c. I went back & we heard the music a little while & looked at people and then went down by the river and sat under a big elm - where we could get the breeze both ways & see the reflections in the water & away from the crowd and there we sat & watched the fireworks against the darkening sky. They were very pretty indeed and we enjoyed it and staid quite late - until a good many had gone but even there crowded cars passed us going home
