at the end of the world

P1090691

what will you find at the end of the world?

friends who put up most graciously with your spoiled and needy dogs, expansive beaches, endless blue skies, water that shakes your soul with a vigor reserved for mixing oil and vinegar, meandering paths through a brush filled hollow that dumps you out onto a beach brimming with the most cherished of childhood memories including gull hieroglyphics

you will also find an outdoor shower tucked sweetly under soft pine trees, there will likely be a dog quite keen to guard your privacy and perhaps another that is more interested in making out with the sun and grass

there are long, winding roads to walk and walk and walk til all sense of time is lost

  2. OMG - Henry on a beach towel?! Taking in the view? Such a natural (I am still teaching my human child proper beach etiquette regarding sand and towels!)

    Ah, Truro ... did you see Mary's bear? And the graveyard where the painter Hans Hofmann is buried? (his signature is etched into the granite stone ... he must have designed the site ... abstract modern in a New England Fisherman's cemetery)

    And out doorshowers - HEAVEN - I actually search for our summer rentals based upon the showers and if there are any pictures of them. As a child I would stand outside, singing to the night sky as I washed the day's salt from my skin. Ahh ... thank you for this visual poem ... i can feel the memories on my skin ...

  3. You have adore a beach that welcomes dogs. My dream, no kidding, is to be an old lady painter living in a little cottage in Truro. No joke. When I'm retired that's where I'm moving with my dog.

    That photo of Henry and Daisy on the beach blanket is priceless, and with a beach umbrella to boot.]

    Looks like a lovely, no more than lovely, time.

  6. Gull hieroglyphics? I LOVE that. Such a great choice of words. Then when I was perusing all of those WONDERFUL photos and came to the one with the gulls I thought that is the one you meant...they are all lined up looking in different directions...until I saw their footprints in the sand. Oh, Elizabeth...you bring beauty to my days. Thank you.
