Summer days and nights hold a magic all their own in this little place. I remember this feeling when the boys were young. Summer being time to slack off. The local kids spend their days jumping into and splashing about in the harbor. Couples stroll up and down, day and night, sit on the wall and chat, lie on the little grassy knoll above the pocket-sized beach. Tonight in the square in front of the church there is open-air cinema. I can hear it through my wide-open window. It is as if the whole world moves outdoors for two months.
