Working with my friends at Mystic Knotwork is fun and always a learning experience! I have been here almost a year and a half and currently miss being in the shop with all the chatter, laughter and creative vibes.
So I thought I'd share some activities myself and my family have been doing while keeping to ourselves these last couple of months sheltering in place in Southern New England.
An earlier visit to Narragansett Beach in Rhode Island.
A trip to Napa Tree Point, along the coast, east of Mystic, a good long walk on this popular beach. Research Napa Tree Point referencing the 1938 Hurricane in Rhode Island. Amazing stories.
Watch Hill Lighthouse viewed from Napa Tree Point Beach.
All kinds of walkers. Can you spot the bare foot?
For a future trip, Stonington Light has a wonderful museum and kid friendly beach. The views are incredible of Fisher's Island Sound.
An earlier trip to Moonstone Beach, Rhode Island.
We've had one kayakable day, it was still chilly though on Worden Pond in Wakefield, Rhode Island.
Our backyard has views of open fields, lots of time for reflection and long walks, bike rides too.
When we aren't lying around we are planting trees. About 100 to go!
Fiddle heads on the side of the road, stop the car!
We figured out how to paint the bottom of our ancient Mako while it sits on the trailer. First you have to wear a sailor bracelet from Mystic Knotwork!
At home the blue birds are nesting. We feed them, watch them nest and raise their young every spring. They are social and thoughtful and soooo pretty, but too smart to eat out of our hands yet.
Peas are coming up and some chive talkin'.
Whoever invented the sunset was brilliant. Driving home: stop the car, pull over, wait go back, what I usually shout out on a good photo day.
Down the street, the Wood River is everywhere in Richmond, Rhode Island.
Catch the rainbow right?
Back home, lots of pie making, thank goodness for those frozen pie crusts.
