Duxbury Beach

I hope you are enjoying your three day weekend. I went to Duxbury Beach on Friday with Miss J and the kids. Although it was a cloudy day, the temperatures were in the upper 40's and it was a great day to walk the beach, do some exploring, and do some rock collecting. In case you didn't know, rock collecting is a very important thing for four year olds to do!

Less than 4 weeks away from the new arrival!!

Historical Scituate Lighthouse

One of my favorite places to photograph along the SE coast of Massachusetts is Scituate Lighthouse. How lucky I feel to live not far away from this beautiful historical spot.

From The Scituate Historical Society:

Captain Simeon Bates, the first keeper of Scituate Lighthouse, his wife, and nine children lived at the house. During the War of 1812 Abigail and Rebecca, young daughters of the lighthouse keeper, prevented the British from sacking the town. Noting the approach of two redcoat-filled barges from a British ship of war, the girls snatched fife and drum and hiding behind a thick cluster of cedar trees made such a din that the British mistook them for an entire regiment and made a hasty retreat. Abigail and Rebecca Bates have gone down in history as 'The American Army of Two" and their courageous act has been recorded in many textbooks and story books.

A Valentine Wink

Four years ago today my Mom was chosen by God to be his Valentine. Each year on this date my sister and I go to the beach at sunrise to celebrate my Mom's life and her love. This year she gave us a quick "wink" as the sky was mostly cloud covered. As always, we felt her presence and her love.

Happy Valentine's Day to you and your loved ones!
