Folly Cove, One of Our Many Treasures

I took a short drive with my camera around sunset. Folly Cove Always looks great, but for some reason is difficult to photograph. But I pulled over anyway and took this picture. In the summer, the sun sets over Ipswich Bay at the Lobster Pool http://www.lobsterpoolrestaurant.com/main/index.php It's the only place other than Key West that the customers stop eating, stand up, and applaud the sunset.

As I was making a few photographs of the sunset over Folly Cove, I heard a babbling brook. It must have been the snow melt from across the road and the quietness of the season. I saw and photographed another angle of this that included a length of silver ribbon entangled in the bush. It made me think of all the wonderful times I've had there with my late parents, my sister (Painter Barb), and now Janet. I think of all the "eat in the rough" memorable occasions that others have had at the Lobster Pool. It's very special.

    Fred-Thanks most for the heart felt reflections of your Parents move me for sure!! Very nice here been out to that point more than once…lot’s of changes since 1968…It was also the end of my paper route heading up 127…and on the other end was Plum Cove Court – delivering the Gloucester daily Times 10 cents then, liked it a whole bunch better when I finally got my bicycle, before that lots of walking :-)
