Eustis Estate, Milton, Massachusetts

Eustis Estate, Milton, Massachusetts

A visit to the Eustis Estate in Milton, Massachusetts has been on my to-do list for quite sometime. Historic New England has preserved this landmark property designed by William Ralph Emerson. I finally made it there on a hot, summer afternoon and enjoyed the coolness of […]

Beauport, the Sleeper-McCann House

Beauport, the Sleeper-McCann House

Gloucester, Massachusetts-A recent visit to Beauport, the Sleeper-McCann House, an Historic New England property far exceeded my expectations to be wowed.  A somewhat understated, stone house built in 1907, set on the rocks at Eastern Point overlooking Gloucester Harbor- it truly does not disappoint. The summer […]

Martha’s Vineyard

Martha’s Vineyard

Living in eastern Massachusetts, I am in close proximity to bucolic Martha’s Vineyard and yet I don’t get there very often.  When I do go, I make promises to myself that I will return soon. It really is quite perfect- an island – that alone […]

Kitchen…many iterations

I am a chronic rearranger.  For as long as I can remember I have rearranged furniture, reorganized stuff, shuffled, moved, and then in some cases, put it all back where it was originally in the same day. Not exactly sure why I do this, but […]

Dinner at Salt Water Farm

Dinner at Salt Water Farm

Late last summer I visited Salt Water Farm in Lincolnville, Maine again, but this time for one of their farm dinners.  My prior visit was to attend one of the much hailed cooking classes at the farm.  I wrote about it here. Curated, hosted, planned, […]

Hyannis Ferry View

Hyannis Ferry View

I love ferries.  This is one of my favorite views as the Nantucket bound ferry departs Hyannis Harbor.

Rockland Harbor Breakwater Light

Rockland Harbor Breakwater Light

On a recent visit to Rockland, Maine I noodled about on the breakwater hoping to reach Rockland Harbor Breakwater Light.  The waves crashing up on the rocks as the tide was coming in made for slippery footing and soon to be treacherous conditions. I chickened […]
