A Day On Cape Cod, Sandwich and Area

17 09 2017

We had the opportunity to visit Cape Cod with a starting destination of the Boardwalk in Sandwich. We took a lot of photographs and with a little girl moms permission I photographed her daughter playing in the low tide mud. She and her friends were having so much fun as was I. One just never knows when a great photo opportunity will present itself.

From Sandwich we just drove stopping along the way to photograph whatever we thought may be interesting to us. We did a kind of drive and click. We also stopped into the Dexter Grist Mill in Sandwich, MA. We took the tour that was given by two gentlemen that told us about the mill’s history with some comedy thrown in. These two men were funny. Well worth the modest entrance fee.

It was a great day. And as the sun set, the fog rolled in. And rolled in very quickly giving us an other opportunity for fog photos along the sea coast the next day. Stay tuned for more photo of our weekend. How was your weekend?

Hope you had fun in whatever you did.





A Day At Ogunquit Maine – Beautiful Place by the Sea

14 09 2017

Well it’s Labor Day weekend and we had the opportunity to visit Ogunquit Maine. It’s name means Beautiful Place by the Sea, and on this day it was. The weather was great and the sky was blue with some wispy clouds. A great day for photography.

We started or visit by making a traditional stop by Flo’s Hot Dog Stand. Its a family owned business since 1959. Its the secret sauce that makes it special.

Then we drove into Perkins Cove parked our car and walked around the cove visiting some of the local shops and the famous manually operated walking draw bridge. When a sail bout is coming in it’s up to the people on the bridge to press the button sounding the warning bell allowing the bridge to open to the passing boat with a tall mast.

Onto the The Marginal Way, A 1 1/4 mile Coastal Stroll along the seashore. We finished our stroll at Ogunquit Beach stopping into one of the local restaurants to quench our thirst, meet some interesting people and had some conversation.

It’s been a fun day so far and we drove down Shore Road to Cape Neddick Lobster Pound where at sunset we walked around back to photograph some boats in the harbor during the golden hour. The reflections in the water was nice to see before the sun set and we went in for dinner.

We had a lot of fun and that part of Maine is one of our go to destinations every year. Hope you had a great Labor Day weekend and enjoy a few of our photographs.

The North End Festival is a yearly event that Begun in 1919, by Italian immigrants from the small town of Montefalcione in Avellino, Saint Anthony’s Feast has become the largest Italian Religious Festival in New England. Named the “Feast of all Feasts” by National Geographic Magazine, this authentic Italian street festival has it all for people of every age: parades, strolling singers, live entertainment, contests and religious services are held daily.

We started our day by having lunch at World Famous Regina Pizzeria. And as luck would have it Wally (The Boston Red Sox Mascot made an appearance. Did you know that Regina Pizzeria is now the Official Pizza of the Boston Red Sox and they couldn’t be more honored! This exciting new partnership between Boston’s Favorite Baseball team and Boston’s Brickoven Pizza! Wally made sure to visit every table inside and outside taking photos with everyone. What a fun time!

There was so much to eat including that favorite pastry The Cannoli.

We stopped into a local pub for some refreshments, had a great conversation with some local people and folks visiting Boston. Got into a conversation with a lady the is retiring next week that was looking for something to do. She has many talents including cooking and photography/video. I suggested to her why not marry those two interests and start you own cooking show or block. She love the idea and her brain was already spinning. She thanked me for the idea and we moved on.

We walked through Paul Revere Park right by the Old North Church. Took in a tour of how an old printing press functioned and watched A Declaration was printed, We watched an other demonstration on how chocolate was made in the 1700’s and even had a taste. We took many photos during the day and had a lot of fun.

How was your weekend?

Great time on Saturday at the Hudson Elks Balloons and Blues Festival. Some balloons actually took off for an evening ride with chase trucks and crew off. Others launched tether for a spectacle.
