Marion, Massachusetts is just another seaside town away from Mattapoisett…so the next morning as I drove to work again…I took the exit to go there…I loved the way the sky looked and did not want to miss my chance as I spotted a mist in the air…If you want to take great misty pictures, that’s the place…It’s 6:09 AM & all’s quiet, I’m alone, I don’t want to leave but must go to work!!! When I finally looked at this photo, I realized there was a group of people practicing rowing & another boat coaching them & I never heard them…sound carries so well over the water…I don’t know how they kept so quiet…I have the best hearing around!
OH! What you see in the background is the masts of two sailboats!!! I found out by taking another photo from a different angle…

    Beautiful colors and mood. Love the silhouette of the crew practice; makes me homesick… I’m in Florida trying to sell my Mom’s house and move her to a new place. Not only fraught with "challenges’ but I’m now missing Spring in Boston! Thanks for the beautiful thoughts of New England. ;-)

  • Always my friend…always…let me know when you become nostalgic and I will produce another photo of Massachusetts… LOL
