Good Fences Thursday ~ 
An archway that is part of a granite fence on Cape Ann MA
Granite was heavily used years ago for walls and stairs. Now most of the granite quarries are filled with water and some we can swim in ~ others are located on private property.

  4. Nice autumn shots. But you're making me feel guilty about my dogs as they just sit on the passenger seat when we go somewhere in the car.

  8. It is always fun to pop around Cape May with the photo nut and her Muse. I love those granite walls and the arch is amazing. It makes me feel awe at the skill it takes to make such a structure. Fun watercolors too. It is the season of more art when one can't get out or I should say doesn't get out in the cold winds. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

  18. Thank you for your pretty photos! Although we don't celebrate Thanksgiving I like to express my gratitude for the fact that
    my daughter and family didn't lose their house and other property in the bush fire last week.The bush is damaged and the fire is under control fortunately.

  19. The hollowed out tree looks like it could be a nice nesting place for something although not as cozy as Zoe's front seat view.

  39. Dear Carol, Happy Thanksgiving to you! I have never seen that Kahil Gibran quote and I love it. That poetry is so evident in all your photos. Your little watercolors would make great Christmas cards! And the best for last, was the best indeed. I too am grateful for nature, and even when it doesn't soothe the ache, at least it helps to hold it for me... wishing you a cozy and wonderfilled weekend Carol and Zoe. XO
