How 'bout walking with me

I invite you to come along and walk with me along the beach in Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts. I'm here with my "Jack" to do some house clean up and packing up.........some exciting reno's may be happening in the near future🏠

Had to get up early to fit in a lovely walk with Jack because the rest of the day would be so busy.

Come along.......

                                                    Tiny tiny mushroom clusters

                                                   Love the light peering through



                                                   Almost there...holding my breath❤️

                                                    Lovely welcoming sight

                                                    Jack's ready

                                                    Result of the surf

                                                  Jack being vocal.....it's cooolllldddd, but I love it!

                                                   You can see there has been some rough surf


                                                   Great day to sail, although the sails are not up...yet

                                                    Close up

                                                    Windy....see Jack's ears

                                  Some people dock their boats right on the beach...."Tom Luckey"

                                                    It even happens on the beach

                                                     Never any whole shells, but love 'em all

           Lots of these on the beach, not sure what it is yet! tons of round balls attached to strands

                                                    See what I mean

                                                    Horse shoe crab

                                                      Washed ashore

                                                    Love the barnacles on this shell

                                                    Other side, so intriguing to me

                                         Yes, it's windy and I'm always happy on "my beach"

                                                    Time to go, Jack's not ready

                                                    One last look.......bye sweet love

                         Fences up to protect the dunes and beach during the winter months

                                                    Lovely blue sky and fluffy clouds

                                                    And the Sun shining bright

Normally there are shoes/sandals all scatter up the path to the beach but not so much in September

                                          Jack's pouting

                                          Salty wet Dog

                                         Thought this was interesting five finger rooted tree

                                                    See the leaves that are falling

                                                    Sad pathetic Jack

                                                    I felt so mean but there were things to be done!!!

                                                     Just the beginning..............

I packed for two days, now ready for the movers to store for us over the winter. Larger kitchen and room addition and second bath. It will be some very nice usable space. Very exciting, we have been hoping to do for years ; )

This was delivered to me from my thoughtful kids in honor of my mom, their grandmother and her one year anniversary of missing her. It was a day I was not looking forward to, but it was a wonderful day, I felt so loved and not alone at all, thanks to my wonderful family❤️
It's funny because I'm really so relieved the first year of holidays and birthdays are over, the first year is so hard. Now it's the love and happy thoughts that are forever in our hearts, soul and dreams. Yes, dreams, I dream a lot of my loved ones❤

Thanks so much for taking a walk with me, I hope you enjoyed it and could relax and be at peace.
More to come soon, love to you all and thank you for your comments, love and support!

Mother Nature

We had a wonderful weekend, went to a wedding, played a little golf and saw some of our kids! 

But mother nature sure did play a part. We drove to the wedding on Saturday and checked into our hotel, we were getting all dolled up for the wedding. We had the TV on as we were getting ready and the US Open was interrupted due to a Tornado warning in our area.......Oh no the wedding, outside ceremony.....I was getting so upset for the bride and my daughter who was also in it. Well, after 15 minutes the warning was dropped but the storm still came. We had to get in the car and drive in torrential rain to the Country Club. So the ceremony was relocated to the reception area, but many people were so upset and things did get a bit delayed. But there was a silver lining.....just as it was about to start there was a both RAINBOW!!! It was beautiful and magical!


                                          DD and Rob

                                          Marine's  Ceremony

                                                      My Amy and Andy...they're next

Now look at these sky's this week

                                                     Amazing RIGHT!!!!

Oh by the way, do you know any of these crazy people?!?

      Yes, they had a photo booth....... so fun.....and as you can see we did have fun!!!!!

Well, Autumn is here even though we are still having warmish weather, but look what I am finding on my daily walks.

Well, folks that all for now. I have started knitting again. I will share next time. I'll be back. Thanks so much for visiting me here. Love your visits and comments. Thank you so much.

THANK YOU SO MUCH for all you concern and well wishes for my back. I am worlds better and all your suggestions really helped. I started using ice, got up and started moving and slowly I was getting more mobile and with less discomfort. I am thankful for all your comments and kindness.


                    Morning dew and cobwebs........that's what this is.......mother nature again!
