newport around town

here are some shots from our walking day in newport. lots of amazing clapboard houses that were built in the 17th and 18th centuries and have been restored very well. we also checked out the grounds of the tennis hall of fame and saw lots of exotic trees everywhere and ended with the cliff walk which was cool, but definitely not the west coast.

francis malbone inn, newport

the next stop on our trip was newport, rhode island where we stayed at the lovely francis malbone inn. the website really doesn't do it justice. our room was so pretty with a fireplace and a personal garden and the afternoon tea and breakfast were wonderful.

i'll post a few shots from newport in my next post.

castle hill in ipswich

i'm back!! sorry it's been so long. i have been crazy busy at work, but we did manage to get away for a couple days this weekend and it was amazing. katy elliott did a post about how lovely ipswich, massachusetts is in the fall. boy was she right. we stayed at the inn at castle hill on the crane estate and it was perfect!! the inn was beautifully decorated and we had full range of the 2,100 acre estate which includes beach, marsh, forest, dunes and lots of hikes through all of it. all of these shots were taken on the grounds. i also have a few more in the next post.

gulf coast = beautiful

we went to destin, florida last weekend and it was beautiful. the beaches were clean and the water was clear as ever and there were little minnows swimming around our feet. when we were walking one evening there was the most beautiful sunset on one side of the beach and a rainbow on the other. does it get any better than that? we also woke up at dawn the next morning to catch a flight and saw a beautiful sunrise. pretty much the trifecta.

light randoms

here are a few older shots that seem to go together quite well since they have a special light quality. the moon in the landscape shot is barely visible, but that's what i love about it. click to view larger.

wave hill part 1

dan and i took a day trip last weekend up to the bronx and visited the wave hill gardens. it's really beautiful and chill up there at 252nd st. it feels like upstate the second you pass into the bronx. we drove up the west side highway which is also fun and scenic- lots of insanely huge cruise ships, trump place, crazy drivers, etc.

shark tacos

okay, maybe those aren't shark tacos, but it seemed like an appropriate title post. these are just random shots from last weekend.
