7 July

We walked through the golf course on Monday night

to see the fireworks over the Atlantic ocean.

We were perched up on the rocks of the jetty

so we could see them right over our heads

but as we walked back home there were plenty of families

set up on blankets on the grass of the golf course

Happy Birthday America!

This is Marblehead, MA (USA)
where I grew up

My mum lives there still and it is only a few towns away from where I live now

I spent the weekend at my mum's house with my sister

who was visiting.


As I waited for the bus this morning little 2 year old Mila 

drove by with her mother and grandmother 

on the way to her last chemo treatment in Boston.

Neighbors and friends came out to line the roads with balloons 

and home made signs to send her off.

Three police cars with lights going escorted her off island

and the firetrucks had their ladders extended over the causeway

as her car passed under.

Even the town trucks were parked along side.

This rather tiny sort-of island is a pretty sweet place to live 

HERE is a link to the story

It's been so foggy of late here on our rather tiny island 

that the fog horns have been sounding.

I absolutely love that sound

My desk is one of my favorite places in the house


  1. Spectacular fireworks and great photos.

  2. You live in a wonderful place. How sweet that the whole community comes together to support that little girl.

  3. Thank you for sharing this little bit of your life. Love the photos.

  4. Very cool fireworks photo! Sounds like you had an ideal place to watch them!

    What a sweet send-off for Mila.

  5. What a lovely community coming together to encourage little Mila and her family. Sounds like an Idyllic place to live. Hope you have a good weekend.

  6. What a wonderful thing for the community to do for that little girl! Love the edit on the picture of your desk.

  7. It must be great living in such a close community. I hope her treatment goes well. Lovely pics.

  8. Beautiful fireworks and it looks like your Mum lives in a pretty spot. It is lovely how supportive everyone was on Mila. Have a great week.

  9. Floral fireworks and a delightful watercolour!
    Thanks for taking part in the Floral Friday Fotos meme. I hope to see more of your work soon.
