WI winter sunset


 Jesse, Oliver, Evelyn and I went for a quick hike at a nearby site.  The sun was setting as we drove there and it was hard to keep the camera still...

Cemetery Hopping

 This family cemetery is only two blocks from my home in someone's backyard!!

 This stone has some very unusual first names... Rhoby, Tennant, and Thankful!!!
My buddy, Sarah, and I ran to three cemeteries in South Kingstown today, looking for her kin.  Was a gorgeous day and we had fun.  Hopefully we can do it again.

Pt. Judith Fisherman's Memorial

  A new memorial was erected last year at Cronin's Access Area
This was thefirst time I'd ever seen it. 
On the top of the hill at Cronin's Access Area (on top of the bunker) there is a beautiful little park.  Tanya said she used to bring her father here.  A gorgeous spot.

Black Point, Narragansett, RI

Can you see our two shadows??

Tanya stopped by and the two of us hiked the trail at Black Point. I had never done it before and will return.  It reminded me of Hazard Rock.

East Matunuck State Beach after Sandy

 note the piles of sand in the parking lot in front of the pavillion
 The dunes have been seriously washed away
 The parking lot is completely covered with sand.  This shot is taken across the lot, looking toward the entrance.  We had to park on the street, outside the entrance.

Sadly. the dunes were obliterated at the end of the beach, looking toward Galilee.

Peacedale Library, Rhode Island

 the closest library to my house ... very New England....

Halloween after Sandy!!

 notice the pumpkin on top of the very tall stump???
this is a view of the same house/stump/pumpkin taken from our driveway.  The pumpkin is lost in the second photo, but I love the shadows in the foreground!!
