February 8--The Fishwives of Cape Cod

I had to get up at 5 today, but it was much easier after getting to bed before 10. I woke up in a remarkably good mood, that kept up throughout the day. Getting a good night's sleep seems to be working.

Malida got home from school this afternoon and was all hot to go out and practice photography, so I grabbed my camera and off we went. It was less than an hour until sunset, so we headed to the old part of town, where we could shoot for a while, then go have some dinner.

Malida concentrates. She's still trying to figure out f-stop and shutter speed, but she's getting there. She has to start putting together her portfolio for class, so we will got out again this weekend.

We had a nice dinner at the Brick House. I had a steak, but could only finish a third of it, so Malida took some for her lunch, and I saved the rest for tomorrow's dinner. They have the best Italian salad!
