Today is our 9th wedding anniversary
and the 19th anniversary of our blind date,
the day we met. On Saturday we drove up
to Newburyport to spend the afternoon
smelling the salt air, wandering the quaint
streets and shops and having a lobsta roll
as we would say round here.
Family is on the way today for a cookout
so I’ve no time for some creative juice, but
I thought I would give you a little photo tour
of Saturday’s outing.
One of the prettiest things about Newburyport
is the flower boxes outside the shop windows.
Each shop tries to outdo it’s neighbor, so the whole
of State street is blooming with flowers.
Some boxes were hot, some were romantic and some were…
blue and cool…
such a pretty stroll…
Cascading beauty everywhere and also some hot daisies with a bee
We sat by the ocean, by the boat ramp at lunch
and watched the vessels coming and going and
some cute springer spaniels play fetch in the water
while we dined.
Rip tide on the Merrimac, burned bodies
and sails and lobsta, what a treat!
In the mail from pal Lyle was this fab
paper doll she made and mail art envelope re-do,
how did she know our anniversary was today?
Enjoy the heat!!
