DH, my mother and I went to Gloucester last weekend for a knitting retreat (not dh of course, he went to visit friends) and we had some beautiful weather while we were there, so I got to practice my newly learned photography skills.
I'll share a few of them with you here, you can click through if you want to see the whole lot in the album.
I've been assured, and I quite believe, that Gloucester is not supposed to be nearly this nice in mid-April.
But darn the luck, we just happened to be there when the whole east coast is having an unusually sunny, dry, and warm spring.
We saw gorgeous surf.
Fishing vessels and lobster pots.
We took a tour around the harbor and saw some cormorants.
And we walked through Halibut Point State Park.
All of this and we haven't even gotten to the knitting yet!
We stayed at a quirky little b&b that happened to have a wine tasting one of the nights we were there - with food pairings prepared by a chef from Boston - again, some luck we were having!
I practiced my ability to take photos in twilight (aka the gloaming of the day).
It was just so gorgeous there, I would love to go back sometime and spend a little bit more time exploring the town and harbor. The town has such a rich history and is still very much a part of the fishing industury, in our rushed tour before we started the knitting retreat we barely touched what was available to see & do, but we really enjoyed it.
Up next: Knitting!
