  7. I love your interpretation of windstorm...in the sky...galaxy. Am getting a puppy early November. Your little one gets me so excited. Mine is a Havanese. Too bad we aren't close enough for puppy playdates.

  22. I often wonder what would have been going through the minds of people as they came to places like this for the first time!

    I wonder of anybody really does have a sense of possible history.

  28. What a fine collection this week. Never been to Cape Ann but it is on my Bucket List. Loved the seagull, and that baby of yours...well, that is the cutest shot ever. What an endearing face. genie

  29. I don't believe that bundle of mischief did nothing. Looks guilty as hell if you ask me. Like the history on a signpost picture.

  30. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Your photos are fantastic. I have roots from New England but I image that if everyone searched, a large percentage of American trees would lead to New England. That seaweed does not look anything like the seaweed that I have seen on the west coast of Oregon.

  41. It's interesting how seaweed so often looks like something else...wool,grass,carpet,a strange sea creature!
