A Travellerspoint blog


The sound of laughter and chatter drifts into the house from the porch this morning. The "staff" from the "cafe" arrive again today! It's flap jacks for everyone..blueberries...sans blueberries! The blueberries are from Mariannes family farm in Ipswich and they are GOOD.....my fav...along with the blueberry pie, strawberry jam and the Anadama bread. With an assist from Amazon Alexa (Janes new friend) for timing and music, breakfast turns out extra special!


Meanwhile, outside....the north wind is blowing which means a perfect day to fly a kite. Landry is up for some fun and gets that baby in the air. Dougie..kite flying pro from waaaayyy back...shows her how to send a message to the man on the moon! She's excited! We are also lucky enough to spot seals in the bay....take a look.....


We all have a different agenda again today. Rick and I walk into town to see the Rose Dorothea and attend a craft fair.


We run into Eugene, Denny and Landry who are looking for Airbrush Tattoo. We find it and Landry picks a beauty....a rose for a rose!.....and I choose a dragonfly. Check it out.


We decide to return to the house by bus and while we wait we meet a woman, Mary, who is a native here. she's lived here all her life and helps out at the senior center . Rick noticed they are giving a writing class tomorrow at 10:00. Well, sign me up! I ask Mary about it and she says everyone is invited..no experience necessary! Lucky me! I'm looking forward to it...

Everyone is home, cocktails are being served along with some great snacks...goat cheese and olive pesto with some wonderful crackers from Greece, compliments of Marianne, a cheese platter and hummus and chips. Susan and Jane picked up salads, and all sorts of goodies from the local market. Paired with the appropriate beverages, you know...cosmos, wine etc.....its a feast fit for kings and queens!

All of a sudden Denny says, "there's a sunset out there tonight! If anyone wants to go, I'll drive you!" We don't need to be asked twice. Jane, Landry and I are in the car and we arrive at the beach in no time at all. Our lifeguard gets to occupy the lifeguard chair during the sunset! It's a beauty!


Back at the house, Marianne tells us that her niece, Miranda Russell, has a beautiful voice and proceeds to play us recordings of Miranda singing some popular songs...(she is wonderful...what a beautiful voice)!

Miranda Russell...(click on this for a treat!)

.....and to end the day on a perfect note...a walk into Ptown for a little while, a stroll on the Wharf ...

...can't get enough....
