RED. I seen a lot of red these past few days on the beaches of RI and MA. Hurricane Bill blew in and drifted out over the weekend causing the closing of beaches to swimming. Bill's brief stay however brought out a healthy supply of fit, tanned life guards adorned in red along with red flags flapping at every beach entrance and on every life guard stand. Yesterday while a smokey southwesterly wind blew these red floats stood guard as portals to the sea.
