a week in the life

Last weekend we finally made a trip into Boston.  First stop was the Children's Museum.










Back to the quiet of marblehead.
I can't get enough of the gardens and flowers in bloom.





Yesterday we visited the local library and were were happy to find an exhibit on the fishing and shoemaking industries that flourished when Marblehead was young.  The exhibit was just small and interesting enough that the kid's really enjoyed it.






Child's shoes.  Adorable.


On our ride back along the Marblehead Rail Trail, where we happily go out of our way to avoid the narrow roads with no bike lanes, we found this little guy on the path.



Our ride home.

ha. your neighbourhood is looking swell, just grand... as a matter of fact, those alleys in the last images... could be round here too... but nothing round here is better than the beautiful details you shoot, of windows, e.g.. thank you for these, rachel.

I realize I haven't been here for a week or so as I find all these inspiring posts! I'll have to hurry home from work today and read them all carefully. And I just had to tell you how much I love that new header of yours. I am really into ships right now! You make me want to be little Greta. Strolling about - watching interesting stuff - with that perfect belt!

Love.

I know it's not good to be jealous of people... But, damn, I'm jealous right now. I would love to be living where you are now. I'm taking an American Civilization class right now and it's making me lonely for New England. So glad to see you guys are living it up.
