Greetings from Cape Ann!

Amy and I had a great time at Fenway Park yesterday even though the Red Sox managed to lose the game - but only by one run which made it close but close doesn't quite count in that case, does it? Regardless, it was fun and I didn't mind being in the "cheap seats" at all! More on that later though ...

After the game we came back up to the North Shore for an overnight stay in Rockport which is close to Gloucester and the Gloucester Fisherman.  By the time we got here it was a bit late in the evening but I still wanted Amy to see the famous statute and of course I had to snap a couple of pictures even though I have pictures from the last time Jamie and I were in the area in December.

As you can tell from the flags in the picture above, it was a bit breezy on the water last evening and Amy even thought it was cool enough to don a hoodie. She said she could only imagine how cold it is there in the winter but I could more than imagine having stood in that same spot on a cold and gray December day. Still, there's something about the sea ...

Today we're heading back down to Salem and heading over to the Peabody Essex Museum to finally go on that Historic House Tour I've been wanting to do for quite some time now.  We'll be meeting up with my friend Juli from the Hawthorne Hotel who will be joining us for the tour and lunch in the Garden Restaurant of the PEM following the tour.  After that it's back home and reality but for today I'm going to enjoy one more day of my mini-vacation!


  1. You're having a good time - good! :)

  2. Shoot! They almost won... had that last hit gone just a teensy bit farther! Love your Red Sox PINK!

    Yay for mini-vacations, especially in Massachusetts!

    Water calms me and recharges my batteries. Looks like a fun time. Did you have a dog at the park for me?

  7. What a life you lead! :)

    Big hugs, honey...

  8. Beautiful! Love the new look on the blog too. It's been too long since I visited but I do try to keep up. Have fun!!

  9. Hmmmm, every time I blink you're gone off visiting somewhere! lol I'm just envious, wish I was with you to visit all those terrific places:-) How thrilling that you were able to go watch the Red Sox play at Fenway Park!! I'd love to walk along that water as well and a cool breeze would feel pretty nice just about now, it's still really hot and humid over here. That fisherman statue is wonderful!! xoxo

  10. Beautiful pictures, as always. There's nothing like a ball game - even at Fenway Park (though I honestly believe everyone should visit the new Yankee Stadium just once - heaven!)


Thanks for visiting!
