I’ve been wanting to show you some pictures for a few weeks now. Today’s the day! 🙂
Before we start, I just want to mention that you can click on any photo to enlarge it.
You may remember that New England was bracing for a hurricane over Labor Day Weekend. Thankfully it never came and so to celebrate, Sir Beads and I headed out for an afternoon near the water.
We’re awfully lucky that we can hop in the car and bump into the ocean in anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours, depending on which direction we drive. Boston is to the north, Cape Cod to the east, and Rhode Island to the south. All have beautiful spots where you can get up close and personal with the waves of the deep blue sea! 😀
We set out on a gorgeous Saturday in early September. The sun was brilliant and the sky was cloudless.
Hey where did that come from? Ok, almost cloudless.
We went to a favorite spot where you can either drive or walk along the shore. We did a little of both. (People love to fish off the pier.)
Families have picnics; kids fly kites; and couples stroll or just sit and gaze dreamily as the waves ripple and sparkle in the sunshine.
What’s a day near the ocean without a little seafood? Here’s the restaurant where we had a bite to eat. Notice there’s even a place to tie your boat if you arrive by sea.
All that walking made us thirsty. Sir Beads had the ale.
Now, understand that a New England kid loves most things from the ocean and fried clams are delicious!!! Oh oh, I heard a thud! Did somebody just faint? 😉
After we ate, we walked through the town and found a charming gift shop. It was fun to roam around inside.
Next we happened upon an art show with an ocean theme!!! (And they were offering tasty-looking refreshments, but we had just eaten.)
In the middle of the ocean art was this motorbike! It reminded me of you ladies who ride and so I just had to take a picture for you.
We thought this pottery vase with a dimensional wave was especially interesting.
Thanks for coming along on our day by the sea. 😀
