A SHUTTERBUG EXPLORES 5


'If you have two friends in your lifetime, you're lucky. If you have one good friend, you're more than lucky.'
~ S.E. Hinton



A Shutterbug will be exploring Cape Ann MA each week with her camera and her assistant as always. We do look for 'the magic' and sometimes it appears when we are seemingly not looking. What a gift. What treasures nature offers to each of us.


We start our 'blogland' week on late Monday afternoon for Tuesday and then add a post each day. Hope you will make a return visit and share with us.

Took a ride on Sunday with some friends to next town (Essex) over on Cape Ann MA.
A 'die hard' boater still had the boat in the water. It was a very windy and chilly day. Look closely and you can see the white caps in the ocean. O for Ode ~ Ode to winter can't be far off.

  17. Cape Ann still looks colorful and beautiful in the Monday post! But Tuesday is looking a little ominous. You better plan to bring The Art Muse pup to Florida for a while this Winter.;)))! I'll be back later this week to check on the weather ... And to gaze at your beautiful pictures and words!
