Happy Memorial Day!

Parade outside my house

Hello summer! We’re so glad you arrived! Are my legs tan? Did I wear flips flops all weekend and complain I was hot? Oh yes I did and loved every second of it. Tonight I might throw caution to the wind and put the down comforter away for the season. I hope everyone had a nice relaxing weekend too! Below snapshots from around Marblehead.

    Lovely! The perfect shots of a welcome to summer. This summer is most welcomed after one heck of a Massachusetts winter.

    And how cool is it that the parade goes right by your great home!

    (Would you grant me permission to paint that one photo of Marblehead harbor from Crocker Point? Check my blog for my art style if you’d like: kimmorinweineck.blogspot.com)

    Hi Katy,

    What fun summertime shots! And how cool that you’re on the parade route! House is lookin’ good, little by little. You’re so lucky to live in Marblehead. I only visited once, and it was so beautiful! Great shot of you two. :-)
