We were extremely lucky, last weekend, to enjoy beautiful Spring-like weather.
It was a much welcomed break from the cold that's rolled back in.
We also enjoyed Easter dinner with my family at my mom's home.
She lives in a beautiful seaside town outside Boston.
Dinner was so wonderful (yep - we all ate too much)
so a walk along the harbor before further indulgence in ice cream cake was in order.
Out we ventured - trusty Rebel with this weeks lens (100 mm) around my neck.
Fishing boats make their home here.
As do quaint little shops. This has long been one of my favorites -
nautical knicknacks, antiques, postcards.
It's difficult not to love a town with a quaint lighthouse.
Town residents fondly tell the story of Rebecca and Abigail Bates - daughters of the lighthouse keeper during the war of 1812. One afternoon, home alone, they spotted a British warship in the harbor.
While keeping out of sight, they took up a fife and drum, fooling the British into thinking the militia was headed towards them. They became known as the "army of two".
I remember the lighthouse more for the breakwater you see to the right. If you look closely, you can see someone venturing out. This was great fun when I was in high school.
I'm finding the 100 mm focal length extremely awkward - it seems everything is either too close or too far.
I'l be glad to move on in a couple days - it's all part of learning...
I am joining Madge for Rurality Blog Hop and

Have a great day!
