On Friday, my dad and I found the perfect stretch of beach on the Maine coast and skipped stones for an hour.
Good stones are an obvious necessity. This beach was littered with palm sized pieces of slate.
The weather was perfect; minimal wind interference and warm enough that you felt the rush of being outside without gloves for the first time this year.
The perfect toss.
