One thing I love about using my phone as a camera is that my photos are at my fingertips when I’m in the mood to reminisce. I can quickly escape from the subway back to the middle of our last getaway. With the weather suddenly a good bit cooler, I’m already looking back fondly on our well-enjoyed summer.
These are some moments from our melty-hot, stormy and ultimately restful July weekend in the pretty seaside town of Scituate, MA. As with most good weekends, it was spent with friends, and ended with a new jewelry design :)
Before the storm, only a few brave souls were out on the beach. In the distance is the town’s very tall wind turbine.
This is a water tower — can you believe it? You can read here about how a millionaire’s wife asked her husband to “do something about” the view from their estate of a 276,000-gallon water tower, and so in 1902, he revealed its transformation into possibly the prettiest water tower in the world.
This is The Quarter Deck, a shop I remembered fondly since my last visit (in my teens! oy). Its bright windows are full of baskets of starfish, sand dollars and gemstones, so fun to comb through. It’s a little smaller than I remembered, but that isn’t that how memory sometimes works…
We had a really nice time. We were treated to burgers at the deliciously cheesy Wahlburgers (which has gluten free buns, which will make my day any day) and spent a lot of time catching up with our friends.
Back at home, these are the tiny post earrings I made from my Quarter Deck purchases… fifteen tiny starfish for one dollar, yes please!
