    I’m with ya on those sentiments, ladies … 100%!! 😎

    Very inspiring photo too! Hope and beauty expressed here. (and gosh-darn-it … those sentimental memories as well, lol).

    Thanks for posting this Dan.

  4. I couldn’t agree with you more!!


    Can’t believe that a fair portrayal of the Trump EO on immigration was on yes, but, wow!! Now to the above ladies, I know this may feel like another opportunity to don a pu$$y hat or raise a placard filled with expletives, but perhaps you should put your children and their futures ahead of your fear of the boogeyman. Even your cats must be exhausted from the endless sorrow and complaining. 57% of Americans are behind the EO (that’s from a polling firm that called the election right). I know you are all smarter and nicer and more diverse than the majority of Americans, yet for some reason you chose to live in a town that is only 1% black….hmm….save the tears for the actual victims of terrorism.

    • Home grown terrorism is the problem.

    • By the way, children benefit well from travel. Where do you plan to travel to next, to open your mind? Trick question.

      By the way redux, why do you assume the commenters above do Not live in diverse communities?

      Perhaps you should consider other information sources. Or, travel.

      I have never carried a placard of any kind and especially not with unkind or nasty words. By the way, I am a native Westporter who was transplanted to the most diverse county in the USA. We exceeded Brooklyn, N.Y. this year. I love it. Also, I don’t have a cat!

    Yes. Looks just like Seaside Park. Only if the photo was taken during a summer day ….
