A Shutterbug Explores #12

A Shutterbug is 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.

  6. I wish you a very blessed Chritmas. This afternoon our choir is going to sing in one of the two churches we have here in my village. We sing Chritmas carols translated from English and German into Dutch, but also Dutch hymns.

  31. Carol, lovely shot of Cape Ann! Our temps have been very mild. Today is the chilliest we've had. In fact, I saw a few flurries late this afternoon. Tonight the forecast is calling for 26º. But, get this next week they are saying spring-like weather is to be expected. Geez, really?! Christmas week I don't mind if it's cold. Oh well...dear friend have a joyful Christmas and a blessed new year!
