A Hint of Pink

It's Pink Saturday again. Thanks to Beverly from How Sweet the Sound for
organizing the event. Click on the Pink Saturday button on the sidebar for details.

All of today's photos are of the New England sky and all have a hint of pink in them. The first is of Rye, New Hampshire taken from the patio at Saunders Restaurant.

Pink clouds settle over the village of Rockport, Massachusetts.

A view of Rockport Harbor on a beautiful Summer evening.

Nubble Light as seen from Nubble Cove in York, Maine. This was taken just after Labor Day. The crowds had left for the season and it was peaceful in the late afternoon.

A pastel sky and all is calm on the Atlantic Ocean in York, Maine.

After disembarking the ferry from Martha's Vineyard last August, we were greeted with a subtle pink sky. Gas prices were high at Woods Hole on Cape Cod. Thankfully, they are much lower today.

Thanks for joining me today. I hope you enjoyed your brief tour of New England.

Oh how pretty. You requent the same places I do.
Beautiful skies! It has me wishing I were at the coast this morning myself, but my daughter has a friend over so I can't leave : (

One correction, Saunders is actually in Rye, not Newcastle but both are such beautiful places to be on a warm summer night. Rye also has a great place to stop for ice cream or dinner. It's just down the street from Wentworth By The Sea, called the Ice House Restaurant ( Wonderful place to visit after an evening drive!

Enjoy the gorgeous day Elaine!!!

I think pink skies are so pretty!
There's something about the east coast that's so idyllic - we just don't have that here on the west coast. I think I'm secretly an east coast girl - even though I've only visited! ::Jill

XXcellent blog you have here!
It's true, however, you blog is in need of a cat-catcher. If you weren't so far, I'd volunteer my services.

I gotta ck out your site more often.

And, 1 other thing: your link to the Paris Apartment is incorrect. You have one 2 many "R's" in apartment. So, clicking on it won't take you there as it's typed now.

Just FYI.
wonderful photos - terrific post

I lived in Rhode Island for a few months at a very early age, but other than that I've never been to the NE, honey. Your photos are lovely in showing me what it looks like, chickee!! Thank you for visiting with me as I haven't had time to "get around" to all the women for Pink Saturday yet. Nice to meet you.

Appleton Farms- Farm to Table and more

Friday night I rushed home from work, fed the kitties, changed my clothes and picked up my sister at her house. I couldn't wait to head up to Ipswich, MA and Appleton Farms for their farm to table dinner.  As soon as we pulled into the entrance of the property, all the tensions of the day went away.

The weather was cool, a perfect temperature for outdoor dining, live music and lawn games. What a peaceful setting.

The sign said play & have fun. I did not know how much fun we really would have.

Here's a view from the field. The tables were ready outside and there were more inside the barn.

Fences and stone walls encircled the field and property. Hay bales were set up as seating for listening to the live entertainment for the evening.

The band was named The Austin Torpedoes. They were wonderful. We really enjoyed their performance.

Lemonade was available at a self serve station. You could buy beer or wine from the Ipswich Ale Brewery Truck. Yes, the spiggots were right on …

Embracing the season-my Autumn checklist

It's the most wonderful time of the year! I am speaking of my favorite season Fall. We are in the thick of it now and it is fabulous! It's not quite peak foliage but we are getting there.

Here are my reasons to embrace Fall.

1.  Outdoor dining- Those early Fall days are even better than in Summer. Cooler temps make it more comfortable sitting in the sun and the scene is more colorful. In late Fall, I switch to sitting by fireplaces whenever I can.

2. Old graveyards- I am strangely drawn to old graveyards in the Fall. Maybe it's because most graveyards have fantasticly colorful trees and I just notice them more in Fall. Or perhaps it's the Halloween connection.

We have some very old graveyards in New England and they are definitely worth a visit.
You could even take a historic graveyard or ghost tour. There is a graveyard tour in my hometown in two weeks.

3. An Autumn Walk- What's better than an Autumn walk around your neighborhood?

I love to pick up some colorful …
