It was too cold for me to be out on the harbor last night!
Shop Small Saturday is 11/25/17 and it’s a great reminder to support our community and shop local throughout the holidays and EVERY DAY!! Spread the love!
I’m a sucker for clouds and reflections…and they are great today with the high tide! Wishing I could play hooky and just shoot clouds today!
“It’s a good day to have a good day!” Sharing some positive vibes for anyone else besides me who could use them today!
Took advantage of having the morning off to head out for sunrise with my good friend Helen who’s visiting from Chicago. What started with light rain showers over the Essex Marsh, quickly turned into a moody fall glow with some awesome clouds!
You know the holidays are just around the corner when the Christmas Tree arrives on Kent Circle! Save the date: Sunday, November 26, 2017 from 3pm-5pm for the Christmas Parade and Tree Lighting.
No line no waiting in Lanesville this morning. It’s a beautiful day to get out and EXERCISE your right to VOTE!
I don’t know about you but I don’t feel like I gained an hour of sleep this weekend! The upside is that Friday is a holiday for me so I’ll be counting down the hours until then. Today I’m sharing a few shots from one of my jaunts around Annisquam Light taken the same night within an hour of each other. The light changing gives you such a different feel in each pic. Happy Monday all!
As we all dodge all the orange cones of progress as we wind our way through the City streets to work today (which orange cones I have lovingly dubbed the “official city flower”) I share these orange shades of sunrise from last weekend! Have a great day!!
While a lot of us wait patiently for the power to come back on, we can be grateful that the sun is out to warm us up a bit! Hoping everyone gets their power by the end of today!! Happy Halloween!
This place never gets old for me!
The best part of the fall is the late sunrises…even the laziest of us can catch one…at least for the next week or so before the time changes! This morning’s sunrise on Good Harbor I ran across these roses someone left behind.
“Anyone who thinks fallen leaves are dead have never watched them dancing on a windy day!” ~Shira Tamir Happy Friday!!
Did everyone else spend their weekend prepping for the impending winter?? Well lucky for me I got to chose whether I wanted to stack wood or go grocery shopping…which, in my defense, are equally hideous tasks!! I, did however choose to throw myself into the Market Basket melee and was grateful to see that by the time I returned my OCD husband had all the wood neatly stacked and organized by seasoned, kiln dried and kindling. Bring on the cozy fire weather!
As the fog rolled in, so did the Karen Lynn 😀
I was a little jealous yesterday of this crew of kayakers having a great afternoon on the Mill River! Gotta keep squeaking out every gorgeous day we get!
The Coast Guard has been busy in the harbor the last few days. This morning they were hanging out off 10 lb island so they entertained me a bit while I was ‘stuck at the bridge’. Happy Friday all!!
This is “photographically” one of my favorite ships. So glad everyone on board was unharmed.
NEWPORT, R.I. — Rhode Island’s educational tall ship, the Oliver Hazard Perry, lost power Sunday evening and drifted into multiple boats before grounding near Perrotti Park, according to a news release from the Coast Guard’s First District headquarters in Boston.
Station Castle Hill in Newport was providing a safety zone Sunday evening.
The tall ship, whose home port is in Newport, was leaving Bowen’s Wharf Seafood Festival with a crew of 12 when it lost power, the news release said. The 911 call came in at 6:15 p.m.
Two boats from Castle Hill and personnel from the Narragansett Bay Marine Task Force responded.
No injuries or fuel leaks were reported. The incident is under investigation.
The Oliver Hazard Perry, a 200-foot-long three-masted ship that took eight years to build, was finished in 2015. It’s a modern ship with a steel hull, but it was designed to look like a naval vessel of the early 1800s. It is the largest civilian sailing school vessel in the nation.
Perrotti Park is where passengers from cruise ships are ferried to spend time visiting in Newport.
