This afternoon, Jim and Mary invited four people over to help them make 600 buttons! Yes. Mary volunteered to make buttons for the 27th Annual Downeast dance Festival coming up on March 24-25. It is very easy to do with a button machine. They've borrowed two.

Meanwhile, I took a walk, to the same place - Crescent Beach - this time by myself. A bit breezier, a bit chillier, slightly overcast, but still lovely. This time I counted paces - something I often do. Round-trip from house to beach was about 4200 paces. If my pace is 3 feet, that's 12,600 feet, which works out to 2 miles and a third or so. My pace may be slightly under 3 feet. Certainly two miles at least.

The ocean near their house. The snow is not plowed out down to the little cottage, so I decided not to risk walking down to the beach.
