Dead Calm

Not much going on in Wellfleet today, dead calm. I read in the Banner about the summer worker crisis – business owners will have to be inventive to stay open since the H-2B immigrant workers cap has been reached nationwide. Soon Help Wanted signs will appear in shop windows. For now, most local stores and restaurants are closed, with the exception of Herridge Books and, of course, Wellfleet Marketplace. Sven and I drove over to Duck Harbor where we saw a seal, unusual in the bay. Earlier, we had walked to Dyer Pond and surprised a naked lady, who dove into the water at the sight of us and swam to shore.
