away for the weekend: my little town

my little town

Many thanks to Christopher Columbus for exploring the world
- for which we celebrate in Massachusetts
- with a day away from the office
-inspiring me to do a little exploring of my own

A sunny day with my camera in hand, I headed out the door for a walk through my little town
Although I'm not a big fan of cemeteries,
the Rowley Burial Ground dates back to 1639
many of the stones are unreadable - but others have interesting stories to tell

I loved the play of the light on this fence
- and the bokeh in the trees - (lucky bonus)

- and the friendly exchange of hellos with passersby.

Greg and I are headed to Quebec City for a long weekend
- kind of a late anniversary celebration
We both have such busy work schedules, lately, that trying to find a few 
days to get away together has been a bit of a challenge.
I wonder whether that's normal, or maybe we took a wrong turn somewhere...

Either way - I'm happy for a little time away!

Have a great weekend!

  10. They put some money into that fence - around a cemetery.

  11. Good for you to get out exploring! I love iron fences and cemeteries. The best headstones are the ones with multiple wives listed. Glen better not do that.

    Please visit:

  13. What a beautiful old fence and such a neat effect in the trees! I just finished a book by Louise Penny that was set in Quebec City...what a coincidence! It sure made me want to visit. Have FUN! Hugs, Diane

  14. That is a really neat old fence at that cemetery. Enjoy your trip.
