Mr. & Mrs. & Miss Day came over to call, after supper & while Alice put Gurdon to bed Miss Bradley & I went up to the Lookout for Mrs. Reading & then down on the rocks to watch the tide turn and the breakers beat - Oh! it was so fine. The brilliant blue of the sea had turned a lovely gray & the sky was rosy & fantastic with clouds we sat there till there was only moonlight left - listening & talking - Mrs. R. told me much about Nova Scotia - advises me to take the Plant(?) line of steamers from Boston, if I go. And stay at the Misses Wilson's on Cliff St., Yarmouth (on her recommendation, if we go! We walked up to the hotel and there sat on the porch looking down the beach - a most mag- nificent view - the lights of Ogunquit - then Wells Beach a glitter - some space beyond - Then Kennebunk- Kennebunk Point. Then "Woods Island light" on Point Porpoise(?) In the other direction we could see Boone Island light - off York. I was reluctant to turn my eyes away.
