Daybreak over Clubfoot Creek, Havelock, North Carolina.

I'm back in Vermont after spending ten languid days in North Carolina, where I passed time reading Dashiell Hammett stories, walking on Wrightsville Beach (and here) in the unseasonably warm temperatures, and browsing at Saigon Sam's Military Surplus in Jacksonville. There are seemingly endless miles of sprawl peppered with innumerable chain restaurants and it is quite different from home.

But now I am back in Vermont where, in a cruel reversal of fortune, the weather is unseasonably cold -- pretty much full-on winter -- and I need to throw myself into the breach again.
