Wanderings

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 […]

Belfast, Maine

A charming, waterfront town on Penobscot Bay with a vibrant downtown, Belfast is walkable, comfortable and full of interesting architecture, art and history in a very relaxed, low key setting. I happened upon their Classic Small Boat show as a part of the Belfast Harbor […]

Hyannis Ferry View

Mindful of Ireland

Mindful of Ireland

As St. Patrick’s Day approaches I am mindful of Ireland.  Yet, the celebration of all that is Irish here in the US is a big stretch from my thoughts of Emerald Isle. Have you been?  If not, put it on the must-do list.  It’s lovely […]

Gardner-Pingree House

Gardner-Pingree House

A few weeks ago I treated myself to a day off and in the company of a dear friend and visited the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusetts. One of the museum’s highlights is a tour of the Gardner-Pingree House, an early nineteenth century, Federal […]

Early Fall

Early Fall

Early fall bounty. So imperfectly perfect.
