Transitions by Bennett Molinari and Richard Molinari Rows of Locally Grown, Crisp Apples ................... Line the Stands at Boston Public : Market's Seasonal Farmers Markets ..... : ...... Native Heirloom Roxbury Russet Now Arriving at the Markets There is no better indica- tion that fall has arrived j than seeing infinite rows . (Photo by Molinar) middle aged women, who ve hadn't noticed earlier, racel into the chilly water yelping and screaming then finally took the plunge and began swimming, the sea seemed to rejuvenate them. Seagulls were everywhere, embold- ened by the departure of bather's, it was fun to see them "carry on" comically running in and out of the water on match-stick legs that hardly seemed capable of supporting them.

It seems there is always something new to relate each time we return, something unex- pected or forgotten that becomes evident as a result of playing "hooky," to use a term from our youth, aban- doning work and the press- ing cares of the day, for sev- eral carefree hours, and so we write again of our latest insights. We arrived late in the day to find a town in the early stages of transition, unlike several weeks earlier, there was no need of driving round and round looking for a parking place, there were many to choose from along the picturesque streets no longer flowing with traffic. We made the short walk to Front Beach which was nearly deserted, a complete transformation from just three weeks ago when we struggled to find a patch of open sand to spread our blanket among the bathers. An old couple, were on the beach walking along the shore line with their dog beside them, mimicking their pace. Suddenly, two of local apples available at the Boston Public Market. The Dewey Square and City Hall Plaza markets are fea- turing locally grown, crisp apples of nearly every kind --Macintosh, Macoun, Gala, Cortland, Honeycrisps, Spar- tan, Spencer, and more.
