After a nice run in the morning (the "Beach to Beacon 10k" in Portland), we did the usual things that we do in Maine, for most of the day: playing hearts on the porch, throwing frisbees on the beach, taking a walk down to the creek. In the evening, we went to the Illumination Night concert outside of Jakeman Hall in downtown Ocean Park, then, thanks to Tom's inspiration and persperation, we participated in the Illumination Night festivities by making our house into a giant lantern. Most people were bewildered by Tom's effort, making comments like, "What kind of window treatment are they using?" Fortunately, an enlightened few people appreciated our unique contribution to the celebration.
